Creation of Diocesan Youth Council
Calling high school youth! Looking for another way to get involved with your church and diocese? How about an additional service qualifier for that resume or those college applications? Interested in leadership and developing these skills? The Diocese of Milwaukee is looking for qualified youth to participate on a Diocesan Youth Council. What does this council do, you ask? It plans events for the youth of the diocese of course! At this time we want to plan a few major events a year, specifically for spring and fall 2016. But these require at least 2 previous planning sessions. Please keep in mind this will require some travel and time commitment. Our first Planning Meeting will be Saturday November 14,2015 9am-3pm at St. Paul’s, Watertown. If you are interested in participating, please contact Rev Carla McCook to confirm (firstname.lastname@example.org) Looking forward to seeing you this fall!
