Thursday, October 4, 2012, at 3:00 pm ET: Effective Strategies for Reaching Young Adults, Catholic Speakers Online.
We will review research about the characteristics of Emerging Adults and the social forces that shape them as well as the characteristics of congregations that effectively minister to them. Participants will be invited to reflect on how these data might help them to develop insight about their ministries to young adults as well as shape models to apply in their own settings. It may be helpful to look at the https://www.changingsea.org website before this webinar.
