Pope Francis has challenged young people to get off the couch and go out to be missionary disciples. How can we support them in growing as disciples of Jesus? This webinar will provide practical strategies for engaging youth in service which is rooted in prayer, Scripture, and Catholic social teaching. We will look at service projects, family service, retreats with a service component, and week-long mission trips.
