Have you noticed a declining presence of young adults in your parish? Are you wondering what can be done to improve engagement and keep young adult members? This webinar seeks to answer those questions by focusing on some of the realities and challenges that many describe as a growing chasm between the Young Adult community and the Catholic Church.We will discuss, through our shared experiences, some of the universal attitudes that Young Adults may have towards the Catholic Church. This webinar is designed to create a discussion around bridging the gap between Young Adults and the Catholic Church, and fostering a relationship that will enhance both the church and the Young Adult community and their families.

Pastoral Plan of Action Webinars

The NBCC is presenting a series of webinars as a result of Congress XII feedback. The topics that were of most concern to our constituents, clergy, and leadership, formed the basis for the selection of these webinars. 

Presenters: Bishop Roy Campbell Jr., Sr. Patricia Chappell, SNDdeN, and Mr. Ralph McCloud

"This webinar will focus on the need for honesty in admitting our complicity in the sin of racism within our Catholic community. We will contextualize our remarks with the mandates found in the Gospel and in our Catholic Social Teachings. We invite our listeners to discover that racism cannot be "fixed", but rather we are all called to be transformed into a Beloved Community where all are cherished."

Presenter: Fr. Stephen D. Thorne, facilitator
