National Young Adult Ministry Summit 2018


May 15-17, 2018 – Washington, DC

Presented by the USCCB Secretariat of Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth in collaboration with the ad-hoc National Advisory Team on Young Adult Ministry

The National Young Adult Ministry Summit brought together leaders in young adult ministry for three days of conversation and dynamic dialogue about the best practices and models for vibrant young adult ministry. The Summit was especially timely in light of the upcoming Synod on "Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment."

Summit Breakout Session Notes

Notes from each of the National Young Adult Ministry Summit breakout sessions are now available. Each breakout session used the framework of See - Judge - Act, following the wisdom of Pope St. John XXIII in Mater et Magister.

“There are three stages which should normally be followed in the reduction of social principles into practice. First, one reviews the concrete situation; secondly, one forms a judgment on it in the light of these same principles; thirdly, one decides what in the circumstances can and should be done to implement these principles. These are the three stages that are usually expressed in the three terms: look, judge, act.”
Mater et Magister, 236

Round A: Encounter

Round B: Accompany and Form Community
