US Marist Campus Ministers and Religious Educators meet to discuss educating head, heart, and hands

05/11/2007: United States

Chairpersons from Campus Ministry and Religious Education departments of US Marist schools gathered at Morning Star Renewal Center in Miami, Florida from September 16-18 to discuss recent findings and learnings on adolescent cathechesis.

This year’s gathering was a follow-up to last year’s meeting which focused on the question, “Will Our Faith Have Children?” presented by Mr. Michael Theisen of the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry.

This year’s presenter was Mr. Bob McCarty, president of the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry. Bob was the presenter at one of our inter-provincial assemblies in the mid-1990’s.

Bob’s focus was on the religious education needs of young American Catholics. He stressed the importance of responding to the actual needs of high school age Catholics and not our need to create copies of ourselves.

Grateful thanks to the Christopher Columbus community for hosting the group for dinner on Sunday, September 16 and to Father Julian Gonzalez of the Columbus faculty for celebrating mass for us.

Next year’s Sharing Our Mission for Campus Ministry and Religion chairs will be held in Chicago from Saturday, October 4 through Monday, October 6.
