Upcoming Diocesan Youth Council Gatherings
Important Note about the 2021-2022 DYC Meetings
We are doing everything in our power to have meetings in person this school year. DYC reps, be on the lookout for more information being sent to you. If we need to, we will move DYC meetings virtually (via Zoom). DYC representatives will be notified via Flocknote. For online meetings, there will be online permission forms that DYC reps’ parents need to fill out. DYC reps won’t get the link to the meeting until the permission form is filled out. There are specific guidelines for online gatherings that we need you to look over. Parents and youth ministers, as always, you are welcome to join in on the call.
Are You a DYC Parish/School Representative? Start Here!
New DYC reps are encouraged to fill out this information form after they have been nominated by their parish/school youth ministry leader. (Here in Spanish) Both sides need to be filled out. Knowing that it might be difficult to gather signatures right now, an email from the pastor saying that he approves of the recommended reps and a formal email of approval from parish/school youth ministry leader would take the place of signatures. Parents and representatives should be able to sign the form.
Once completed, the form can be mailed to the diocese, attention OYYA:
Office For Youth and Young Adult Ministry
Diocese of Gary
Merrillville, IN 46410
It can be scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
If necessary, reps can take a picture of the application and email it to email@example.com. It’s not the best option since it is hard to read if it is straight from the camera. One app that enables a smartphone to scan documents is called CamScanner. It’s a free and scans documents nicely. They can then be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Sunday, September 19, 1-4pm: DYC Meeting, Pastoral Center
