Youth Ministry – Catholic Community of Stratford

Are you interested in being part of a committee that will help revitalize and grow youth ministry in the Catholic Community of Stratford? Our five-parish collaborative has been accepted into the Accompaniment Project with the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry.
