The Diocese of Oakland Faith Formation for Children & Youth office supports the faith journey of our young people by promoting a comprehensive approach to youth ministry. Our goal is to support and equip those who serve in youth ministry with the tools and resources to create life changing Christo-centric formation in order to prepare our youth to live out Christ's call to discipleship.
We do this by:
- Offering ongoing catechetical and enrichment opportunities
- Providing resources, tools, and ongoing support
- Providing ongoing communication about youth ministry matters
- Coordinating Diocesan Youth Events in cooperation with youth ministry leaders
We support and encourage the comprehensive approach to children and youth ministry as outlined in Renewing the Vision: A Framework for Effective Ministry with Youth by the U.S., Conference of Catholic Bishops
