Youth Ministry provides both formal and informal experiences for young people to learn, celebrate and serve as members of the Catholic community and to grow in their understanding of Christ’s message. To be effective, ministry with youth seeks to achieve a balance among the many components of a comprehensive ministry. Each of these components revolves around the community’s own life. The following are the eight components of Youth Ministry as outlined in the document “Renewing The Vision," National Conference of Catholic Bishops: Advocacy, Catechesis, Evangelization, Community Life, Leadership Development, Pastoral Care/Guidance, Prayer and Worship, and Justice, Peace and Service.
