Image 45Welcome to the Department of Youth Ministry! In addition to operating Camp Guggenheim, we are here to be a resource for every parish whether you have a robust and active youth ministry program or if you’re starting from scratch. The youth department is eager to serve all of our parishes in building up the faith of our young people and calling on them to be authentic witnesses of the gospel under the direction of our youth director Deacon Brian Dwyer. If your parish has an active program please check out our list of available resources. If your parish is interested in developing a new youth ministry program, please read the section Developing an Effective Youth Ministry Program in Your Parish.


    • Be responsive to the needs of all parishes
    • To develop sustainable programs, events and activities
    • Protect the dignity of young people
