Welcome and thank you for your work with the youth!
With the current realities that have been brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Directors in the Office of Discipleship & Evangelization have assembled several resources for your use, including: recommendations for how to lead your families through this time, considerations and ways to continue formation while “social distancing,” and a list of resources available online for the various demographics in your parish. We will also be introducing a few diocesan initiatives that can be used to supplement your efforts. This compilation of resources can be found on the PCL Portal: https://pcl.sfcatholic.org/covid-19-response.
Below you will find links to the general resources and offerings of the Office of Youth Discipleship & Evangelization. Please do not hesitate to contact us if there is anything that we can do for you!
