A special Holy Listening Session for the Youth of the Diocese
The Bishop Search/Nominating Committee is beginning to hold Holy Listening sessions throughout the Diocese of Missouri, and will hold one specifically for youth.
While our youth are encouraged to attend a holy listening session held in their home church, this special session just for them will allow them to give voice to their hopes and dreams for how our new Bishop will minister with the youth community.
The Youth Holy Listening Session will be held:
Youth Leaders are encouraged to attend with youth from their parishes.
I realize this is short notice, which might make it difficult for some to attend. The Search/Nominating Committee has been very busy scheduling holy listening sessions with all of the congregations and many ministry groups in the diocese, on a tight schedule working with many calendars! If youth from your parish cannot attend this session, please remind them that you look forward to seeing them at the session in your parish, and invite them to fill out the online survey (see link above in top article).
