Nurturing the Development of Faith

Each individual serving in ministry is called to ‘nurture’ the faith of those that they serve, and do so through the fruit of continually nurturing their personal faith.  This day will lend a special focus to the family perspective, which is also embraced by the Strong Catholic Families – Strong Catholic Youth initiative the Diocese is engaged with currently.  To nurture youth requires nurturing their parents/guardians as well and helping parents, often young adults themselves, to see their role as nurturing their individual and family faith as well.

All clergy and parish ministers are welcome.  Please note that parish teams pay one fee for registration and only for lunches for all additional parish staff.
