Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
We believe that God and the child have a unique relationship with one another particularly before the age of six and that the growth of this relationship should be assisted by the adult, but is directed by the Spirit of God within the child.

Christ’s Light in All Youth (CLAY) is a one-day retreat for high school freshman and sophomores. Partial scholarships are available.
DiRT is a retreat that is all about finding Christ in Confirmation. Many high school students do not have a regular prayer life. These Confirmation retreats seek to enable an encounter with Jesus and give catechesis that helps sustain that relationship in their daily lives.
An ideal place for parish youth councils/boards to deepen their Christian leadership identity, strengthen their leadership skills, learn new programming and promotional ideas, and have a great deal of fun in the process.
Teens Encounter Christ (TEC)
Teens Encounter Christ (TEC) is a 3-day retreat based on the Paschal Mystery of Jesus Christ. TEC involves older adolescents & young adults encountering Christ in a way that many have never experienced before.

While there are a number of college campuses with active full-time campus ministries, complete with chaplains, facilities, and staff, most of the 28 college campuses in the Diocese of Wichita are served by volunteers and the local parish community. We help serve those college parish communities with financial resources and the strategies to integrate college students into an active local faith life.
We offer assistance to help strengthen parish young adult ministries in parishes of all sizes and cultures. Contact us for more resources.
