WEMO Youth

Inspiring, educating, and empowering young people


The mission of WEMO Youth and the Youth Ministry Commission is to inspire, educate, and empower young people to live the Good News, marks of which are: truth, hope, justice, mercy, forgiveness, and peace.

We seek to fulfill this mission by equipping youth, and youth ministers, with the resources needed to create dynamic, local ministries. Through diocesan-wide, regional, and parish events, we seek to foster safe and loving environments for youth that allow them to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Through our programs young people are encouraged to ask tough questions, minister to one another, and grow to be the people God calls them to be.
