Mission Statement

Our Mission

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
