About Us

The Office of Catholic Youth serves young adults at three different levels: Parish, Region, and Diocese. Here's how we do it:

Parish

We serve parishes through consulting, networking, training, guest-speaking, and resourcing. Have us come and meet with your parish leaders to help develop a personalized plan. We also offer ongoing training and resources in order to have parishes succeed in starting and sustaining ministry for young adults.

Region

Our team works hard to ensure that there are networking opportunities for young adults at all levels, but especially regionally. We've recently launched two regional ministries: Spiritus Via in the East and Spiritus Vitae in the West. This is supplemented with events like our popular Theology on Tap, as well as by collaborating with existing regional young adult ministry groups.

Diocese

Our office recognizes the need to build a strong sense of community with young adults in our Archdiocese. We accomplish this by offering our own conference for young adults: RenewTO. This annual conference takes place each Fall, with the inaugural conference taking place this past October. We also support our University Chaplaincies in retreat planning, and aid in planning of other events including networking opportunities and Adoration events.

2019 Mission Trip

For the past two years, a small group of young adults traveled North-West to the Diocese of Mackenzie-Fort Smith for a week-long mission experience. This year, we are planning on returning to the same location to further our work there.

Theology on Tap

Theology on Tap is a night at a pub/restaurant that provides young adults with a theological talk, a comfortable place for discussion with their peers, and a chance to have their questions answered.
