Shared prayer for Youth Ministry
The Diocese of Gary OYYA serves those who serve the young Catholic Church.
Through collaboration with parish leaders and youth-serving organizations, the Diocese of Gary OYYA seeks to nurture the total personal and spiritual enrichment of our youth and young adults, and to call them to full participation in the life, mission, and work of the faith community as portrayed by Jesus in the Gospels.
OYYA programs are funded in part by generous donations to the diocesan Catholic Services Appeal
THANK YOU for your gifts!
and young adults factor prominently in Synod
Youth and young adults were mentioned frequently
on Synod Saturday. While “Young Catholics” was its own
category, youth and young adults were mentioned in other
ecclesial areas, as well. The faithful greatly values
ministry with youth & young adults. Affirmed and
challenged, OYYA is ready for what's next.
