Early in December, on diocesan youth ministry staff traveled to Tampa, FL to participate in the NCCYM, hosted by the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry (NFCYM), taking the opportunity to both spread the good news of our Manus Christi program and to grow as youth ministers ourselves. The conference provided an opportunity for learning about more effective ministry practices, networking with fellow ministers on a variety of levels, diving into prayer and retreat, and enjoying the fellowship & camaraderie of being surrounded by other people who have also dedicated their lives to serving the Lord in His Catholic church. Additionally, we had a booth at which we got to talk to attendees from all over the country about the unique opportunity of attending Manus Christi, our very own Appalachian service and mission experience that is open to any youth group and has already brought groups from 10 different states throughout it's time. We love most of all to have our own diocesan teens be sure to attend, so for more information about this amazing program we love providing, click here: www.manuschristi.com
