Ministry with Gen Z and their families


       The Center for Ministry Development is excited
to announce a new workshop series for 2017 
Saturday, October 14, 2017
10:00 am to 3:00 pm
Cathedral of SS. Peter & Paul Parish Hall, Providence

Just as we are getting used to the Millennials, along comes Generation Z, which includes youth born between 1995 and 2010, 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.

This workshop will share the research about Gen Z youth and their families along with effective ways for parishes to engage youth and their families. We will include practical ideas and starting points within these topics as we explore the ministry implications for youth ministry, catechesis, sacramental preparation and parish life:

  •  Listening to and Walking with Gen Z Youth 
  • Engaging their Parents and Families
  • Making it Personal through Relationships and Formation
  • Empowering the Innovators – Letting their Faith Soar
  • Transforming Ministries and Creating New Pathways
