The Role of Youth Faith Formation or Volunteer

The Role of Youth Faith Formation or Volunteer

What can I Do?

  • Provide opportunities for students to encounter vocations as a group
    • Assemble boys by age group or class to have a screening of a vocations-themed video
    • Invite parish clergy to come to the faith formation session and share about their vocation
    • Invite religious sisters to visit classes or present to the students
  • Identify and approach students who demonstrate signs of a vocation to priesthood/religious life
    • Take note of who shows more interest or curiosity when there are conversations about vocations to priesthood and religious life
    • Invest in those particular individuals with resources, prayer cards or invitations to further vocations events.
  • Connect students to parish clergy outside of Mass so that they can connect to the clergy at Mass
