Ministry with Gen Z abnner

Just as we are getting used to the Millennials, along comes Generation Z, which includes youth born in the mid to late 1990's, mostly to Gen X parents.  These young people are tech savvy, social innovators, and are anxious to create a customized way to belong and contribute.  We can accompany this generation by listening, learning and responding.  We can create pathways and onramps for Gen Z youth so that we can share the Good News and include their many gifts and their seemingly boundless energy.  we can also make a faith connection with Gen X parents that could spark faith growth for the whole family.  

The workshop that CMD has planned out for all that attend will share the research about Gen Z youth and their families along with effective ways for parishes to engage youth and their families.  The presenter, Joan Weber, will include practical ideas and starting points withing these topics as we explore the ministry implications for youth ministry, catechesis, sacramental preparation and parish life.
