Kevin is back, kinda’: Many parishes have begun meeting with parents, promoting it, holding fundraisers, etc. As you likely by now know, I resigned as full time director of youth and young adult ministry. I am happy to announce that I will remain employed by the Diocese of Gary to oversee three important youth and young adult ministry events in 2019: the TAPT retreat (March 16-17), the new Awakening retreat (April 12-14), and the diocesan delegation to the National Catholic Youth Conference (Nov 21-24). Rest assured, if all goes according to my plan, you will hardly experience any change from previous years, with one notable exception that I will not be in the office M-F, I will be doing the work from home part-time. You may find less frequent reminders as a result, so it is essential to follow the “Dates and Deadlines” document already sent. ~Kev.
