2021 Vision Summer Dates

Explore your call to service in God's Church

Strengthen and expand your ministry to young people in the Church. At Notre Dame Vision for Campus and Youth Ministers, network with other Church leaders from across the country as you continue your education and formation with the assistance of experts in theology, ministry, and spirituality.

Take time for prayer and personal reflection while immersed in the beautiful and sacred Notre Dame campus. The week explores the dynamics of God's call for us and our response through theological reflection and personal renewal.

I leave here renewed, refreshed, and re-motivated to share my ministry with the young people in my parish.

Patrice Sheil, Diocese of Davenport, Iowa

[Notre Dame Vision] allows ministers to refresh and spiritually recharge THEMSELVES, while at the same time, immerses their youth group in a reflective, prayerful, community-building experience.

Notre Dame Vision for Campus and Youth Ministers complements Vision for High School Students during the summers at Notre Dame. The conference includes theological exploration and personal renewal with a community of campus and youth ministers from across the nation. Engaging and enriching keynotes, facilitated discussions, prayer, and reflection address the various aspects of God's call for each of us and the response of faith.

High school campus ministers, diocesan directors of youth ministry, parish youth ministers, high school religion teachers, and all those whose ministry efforts touch the lives of young people are invited to attend. Participants are not required to accompany a high school group or individual.
