Responsibilities for this position can include, but are not limited to: innovative faith formation relevant to Jr. and Senior High youth, knowledge and praxis of Catholic based catechesis and evangelization, flexible work schedule, pastoral ministry, service oriented program development, coordination of effective volunteers and compliance with Archdiocesan safe environment training. There is also a need to reach out to local area high schools to develop campus style ministries that target Catholic youth. Prior youth ministry experience is preferred, but not necessary. Salary is commensurate with education and experience and the selected applicant must successfully complete a criminal background check.
