Youth Group Visits

Each week James Lawrence, diocesan youth coordinator, will visit a different youth group. The goal is to meet the young people of the Diocese and see their ministry in action, while also sharing upcoming diocesan events. He will also take video clips of youth speaking of their youth group experiences to create a video for Diocesan Convention. To arrange a visit, please contact James Lawrence, Diocesan Youth Coordinator, at 251-616-2162 or

Young Adult Leaders Retreat

A group of six young adults (25-to-35 yrs) has gathered to begin discerning what they are being called to offer for young adults in the diocese.

There is no cost to attend this retreat, but space is limited. If you are interested in being part of this group, please email
