The Archdiocesan Office for Youth and Young Adult Ministry is offering a workshop on preparing youth for the Sacrament of Confirmation. 

The workshop “Confirming Young Disciples” will be presented on Tuesday, May 13, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., at St. Vincent de Paul Church in Salem (1010 Columbia Street, NE).  The workshop is designed for priests, confirmation preparation leaders, coordinators of youth ministry, and directors of religious education.
The workshop will be presented by Cheryl Tholcke, Project Coordinator of Youth Ministry Services for the Center for Ministry Development. Thoicke holds a master of pastoral studies degree from Loyola University in New Orleans.  She is an author of materials for youth ministry, evangelization and catechesis.
“Confirming Young Disciples” will help leaders in sacramental preparation build a confirmation preparation team, select effective resources, engage families of youth more effectively, better engage the parish community in sacramental preparation, and explore a vision to ensure that confirmation preparation is rooted in comprehensive parish youth ministry. 
The cost of the workshop is $54 per person, which includes morning hospitality, lunch and workshop materials.  Registration is available online: www.cmdnet.org/confirming; via mail: CMD, 5713 Wollochet Drive NW Suite A, Gig Harbor, WA, 98335; or by phone: 888-723-2433.
