From the Diocesan Office with Young Catholics
Summer 2018 is right around the corner and we are calling all young people to fill their lives with hope and action, to have the ultimate spiritual glow up. Beginning with Y-CAST (Young Catholics Actively Serving Today), a leadership training offered for youth ages 14-17. Y-CAST is a hardcore, intensive boot camp for the leadership spirit.
The only muscle being worked out will be the gifts and fire of the Holy Spirit each individual has, from knowledge to practice to action. Following this intensive training, the San Bernardino Vicariate Youth Ministries are hosting a fun filled afternoon of hope, no, really, its HOPE-Fest! Hope-fest will be taking place on Saturday, July 21, for ages middle school through high school.
But, wait! Summer is not only for the youth. Listen up young adults! Suns out, souls out, so let’s replenish our spirit through a silent retreat from July 27th through 29th. If the temperature rises, let’s take a cool down with Theology on Tap (TOT). The young adult ministries from West End Vicariate, Riverside Vicariate, and the Low Desert Vicariate are coming together to offer a series of four sessions in their vicariates during the months of July and August.
If this is not enough, this summer we also have our second annual Convocation for Youth and Young Adult Ministers, Coordinators, and Leaders. The convocation will take place on August 25th and it will provide formation and inspiration to recharge the muscle of the soul and continue ministry.
