What is a Parish Leader?

Parish Leader Letter From Bishop - PDF
What is a Parish Leader? Why do we need them? A Parish Leader is a professional minister appointed by the bishop with the responsibility of leading a parish community that does not have a resident priest. A priest will be assigned as canonical pastor and for sacramental celebrations at the parish. In response to the Pastoral Plan for Evangelization, the Diocese of Youngstown is training 14 individuals (deacons, religious and laity) who will be available to serve as Parish Leaders. This is one way the diocese is addressing the reality of fewer priests. It is an opportunity for faith filled men and women to use their gifts of leadership and administration, allowing priests to focus on the sacramental and pastoral care of the faithful. For more information, visit www.doy.org or contact Pete Schafer, Director of the Office of Evangelization and Pastoral Planning at 330-744-8451 ext. 289

Pope Francis Wants To Hear From You!

Synod Survey Link
If you are a high school teen (age 16 - 18), a young adult (age 19 - 29) or their parent, you can make your voice heard by participating in a 5 - 15 minute long online survey. You can find Synod Survey link on at http://youngstownoyyam.weebly.com/synod-surveys-2017.html “Synod Surveys” link - complete survey before July 31st.
The information for the survey will be used to prepare for next year's meeting between the pope and world bishops. It is important for Church leaders to hear from young people as they make future plans for the church. So please take a few minutes to respond to the survey. Your voice will make a difference.
