Please note: In person, large-group gatherings for Fall 2020 have been suspended due to Covid. This event is being revisioned and details will be available ASAP. Please view the full announcement here.
Summits are inspirational large group gatherings that offer prayer, community, and edge-sharpening formation for all ministry leaders served by OYYACM. The prayer opportunities are authentic, reverent, and inclusive of Mass whenever possible. During activities, small groups, and meal times, Ministry Leaders are able to build relationships beneficial to their ministries. Summits invite the best in the field to share presentations that are relevant to the times, forward thinking, and applicable to the entire audience. The height of our formation offerings, Summits intend to leave ministry leaders restored by the Spirit, encouraged by their peers, and motivated to serve.
Audience: All Summits welcome all Youth, Young Adult, and Campus Ministry Leaders (full-time, part-time, volunteer), Ministry Team Volunteers/Catechists, and any Supervisors, Priests, Non-parish Organization Representatives, and other Parish Ministry Leaders that find the presenting topic relevant.
Volunteer Summits are specifically aimed at a particular audience; namely, volunteer or part-time Ministry Leaders who cannot attend weekday Summits and Ministry Volunteer Teams or Catechists. Additionally, Volunteer Summits may be offered in either English or Spanish. Ministry Leaders are welcome to attend Volunteer Summits with their Volunteer Teams.
Information concerning location, presenter, and topic will be posted when available.
