Youth Ministry
Resource Site

The National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry provides this Resource Site to support and strengthen those who accompany young people as they encounter and follow Jesus Christ.

This Resource Site is continually being updated and developed and we are always seeking best resources for use by ministry leaders in parishes, schools and dioceses across the country. If you have resources to share, please use the button to submit them at any time.


Stay Tuned! This Site is Currently Under Construction...
