Theology Department hosts speaker on youth ministry

The 2014 Spirituality for the Vineyard Colloquium will occur Wednesday, Oct. 15, at 12:15 p.m. in the Presidents’ Room.  This year’s speaker is Chris Rogers, the director of youth ministry for the Diocese of La Crosse, and a new adjunct member of the Theology Department at Saint Mary's.

The talk is titled “Real World Ministry” and will focus on what you may or may not expect if you do pastoral ministry, especially youth ministry, full-time in a parish. There will time for questions and answers.

Pizza and drink is provided. Anyone who is interested is welcome to attend.

The Spirituality for the Vineyard project is a co-curricular program angled toward helping Pastoral and Youth Ministry, Theology, and Educational Studies (Religious Ed.) majors and minors address meeting standards for the National Lay Ecclesial Ministry accreditation.
