Last week, a National Symposium on Adolescent Catechesis was held in Baltimore with 100 invited guests (academics, bishops, practicioners, and leaders of various disciplines related to adolescent catechesis). The goals of the symposium were:
- to identify factors that affect adolescent faith formation and their implications,
- to develop a common language that will help establish standards for effective adolescent catechesis and its assessment,
- to establish tools for addressing the creation of comprehensive youth faith formation programs.
Since this event was by invitation only, now the Partnership for Adolescent Catechesis is offering the opportunity to participate in a Virtual Symposium on Adolescent Catechesis. They are partnering with MyCatholicVoice.com to enable anyone who is interested to hear the proceedings of the National Symposium and engage in the same discussion processes as those attending the live event.
You may be interested in having a group from your parish participate in this opportunity.
