Three-Part Webinar Series:

Pastoral Care and Counseling for Ministry with Young Adults

"What can we tell them? We can tell fearful young people that anxiety about the future can be overcome…Attentive and selfless listening is a sign of our respect for others.” —Pope Francis, Christus Vivit #197, 292

Part 2: Mental Health and Ministry with Young Adults

 

Pope Francis, in his Post-Synodal Exhortation, Christus Vivit, challenges us to ensure our ministry with young adults is rooted in pastoral care, that  young adult “ministry has to be synodal; it should involve a 'journeying together'” (# 206). How can we, as ministers with young adults, and as a faith community,  provide pastoral care for people affected by mental illnesses?  Join us for a special webinar on mental health and pastoral care in ministry with young adults.
