  • May 2020 - The July Intercultural Encounter Journeying Together Postponed! Out of concern for everyone’s safety, plans to gather at the end of July 2020 for Journeying Together: A National Intercultural Encounter for Ministries with Youth and Young Adults have been put on hold due to the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic. The decision has been made to postpone the in-person gathering, likely into next year, and to develop a series of online tools and virtual gatherings to journey with participants throughout the coming year as a way to honor the young people and the pastoral ministers’ desire to continue to walk together in faith. New dates for the in-person event will be announced at a later time. Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks!
