Take part in the Youth Ministry Certification

Since September of 2011, youth leaders and workers have had the opportunity to participate in a certificate of youth studies from the Center for Ministry Development (CMD). The certification is designed to equip parishioners with the skills and confidence they need in ministering to their respective flocks and beyond. CMD has been providing training, resources and parish consultation for pastoral and catechetical ministry since 1978.  CMD is firmly rooted in Church documents.

Due to being underwritten by a Catholic Extension Grant, the Diocese of Shreveport is able to offer this certification at the low cost of $100 per weekend. Eight courses are needed to complete the certification and we are hoping to extend the program after its conclusion in the spring of 2013.

If you would like to participate for continuing education requirements, or you are seeking to complete the certification, please contact the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry to register at 318-868-4441.

Our next class is September 22-23, 2012 and will be taught at the Catholic Center in Shreveport. This class will focus on “Fostering Faith: Growth of Youth through Prayer and Worship.” We would love to have you!
