A network of Diocesan Directors of Youth and Young Adult Ministries
The Fellowship for the New Evangelization is a group of Diocesan Directors of Youth and Young Adult Ministries who are products of the "JPII generation" and continue to be inspired and encouraged by the ministries of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, and now Pope Francis. We exist to support one another in our positions and in our ministry to young people through the Youth and Young Adult Ministries in our (arch) dioceses.
Diocesan ministry is a true joy, but can be a difficult position at times with few peers within our diocese. The Fellowship allows us to gather on a regular basis with those who are our peers in this work. We also study the documents of the New Evangelization and discuss methods of bringing this vision to fruition within our diocese.
We love Jesus Christ, our Catholic faith, our Holy Father Pope Francis, and the deep traditions of our Church. We have committed ourselves to sharing these loves with the young Church of today.
We began this Fellowship in 2006 and are open to anybody that wants to join us in this mission...click here to learn how.

At our annual gathering, we spend time discussing the documents of the New Evangelization and how we are attempting to implement this mission within our diocese. We also bring in priests and guest speakers to guide us in prayer and spiritual growth. Lastly, we always make time for fun and fellowship. Here we are enjoying a night out in Phoenix during our 2019 gathering.
