Tentative YM Schedules

Aug 31, 2018

Dear Youth Ministry Board Members and Friends,

I am going to post below the tentative schedules for each of the Youth Ministry levels below. I would love your feedback on the following questions:

Please post your feedback as a comment below
  • Do the dates and times work?
  • Are there any conflicts with school or sports?
  • Are there better days to run these events?
  • Should we increase or decrease the frequency of these events?
  • Are there any events or themes that we should add/subtract?
  • Are there any events/themes that your would like to take a leadership role in?
  • Any other feedback is always welcome


I have begun a discussion with the other parishes in Newton at the possibility of planning City-Wide Catholic Youth Trips, Events, and Outings. Here are the perceived advantages to this type of collaboration:

  • Easier Transportation (With more students we can take buses instead of cars/vans) this reduces personal liability for volunteers as well.
  • Group discounts - the larger our groups, the better discounts we can negotiate with vendors.
  • More Churches, More Friends, One Identity - By combining parishes for outings the youth are more likely to have a friend accompany them on the trip but it also reminds us that we work as universal church as well as a particular church.
  • Shared labor - each parish doesn't have to reinvent the wheel, instead we can share the work.

If you have any feedback, pro or con, to the idea of collaborating in this way, please comment below.
