Youth Ministry In-Service The In-Service is set up for Parishes or Deaneries to enhance their knowledge of youth ministry and ways to increase the opportunities for youth events. It can easily be tied to a Parish Council or Deanery Meeting or can stand on its own.
The In-Service can vary from an information and question session, to some practical guidelines to working in Youth Ministry. Time line can vary from 45 minutes to 3 hours. It can also be as simple as a 5 minute address at Mass one weekend!
If you are interested in an In-Service for your parish or deanery please contact Michelle.
