Read more175x50

In the 1997 document, Renewing the Vision: A Framework for Catholiccampus ministry3 Youth Ministry, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops lists three interdependent and equally important goals for the Church’s ministry with adolescents.

  • To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.
  • To draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community.
  • To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.

With these objectives as a guide the Faith Formation Office in the Fall River Diocese, along with Campus Ministry, CYO and other programs, provides and supports opportunities for youth and young adults to grow in faith, character and confidence.
