Youth and Young Adult Ministry

Bishop Barron’s talk at the Google headquarters (Googleplex) in Mountain View, CA on March 20, 2018. He addressed a room full of Google and YouTube employees on how religion doesn’t shut down the questing intellect, but in fact opens up our minds, causing us to seek the fulfillment of our deepest longings. These yearnings won’t be satisfied by wealth, pleasure, power, or honor, but only by the God who wired us to be satisfied in him.

The Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry serves the young people of the Diocese of Knoxville by promoting and supporting a framework for Catholic youth ministry. It accomplishes this goal primarily by living and encouraging others to take to heart the eight components found in the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ document Renewing the Vision.
 The eight components are advocacy; catechesis; community life; evangelization; justice, peace, and service; leadership development; pastoral care; and prayer and worship. We hope our ministry will spread the Gospel entrusted to us by Christ to the youngest members of our church and that they in turn will pass the light of the Gospel to others.
