United in Faith – Religious Education/Youth Ministry Endowment


An endowment is established for parish religious education and youth ministry. Its earnings will: Support ongoing training of Directors and/or Coordinators or Religious Education; Support opportunities for in-service for catechists or advance their certification; Supplement media and library resource materials; Furnish training and formation of lay ministers responsible for youth ministry; Enhance programs for adult faith formation and family religious education; and Provide coherent religious education programs. In the unlikely event that any of the ministerial needs outlined in this purpose statement cease to exist, or that funding for these needs becomes great enough that no additional funding is necessary, the Diocesan Finance Council and the Diocesan College of Consultors will make recommendations to the Bishop regarding the use of continued endowment earnings.
