Office of Youth & Young Adult Ministry

diocesan Youth Council

The Diocesan Youth Council exists to give youth of the Diocese of New Ulm an opportunity to grow deeper in their love of Jesus Christ and his Church by providing opportunities for fellowship, intellectual growth, spiritual growth, and human development.

What does the DYC do?

At our monthly meetings, we have time for prayer, fellowship, and discipleship. So, we start with adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Rosary, and Confession available. Then, we catch up with one another, drink some coffee (or beverage of your choice), and head into the “classroom” portion of the event, where we discuss how to pray. After that, small group meetings and then we break out into the different “teams” that help to plan DYC parties, write “The Pulse” newsletter, and coordinate hospitality for the DYC itself. After all of that…it’s time for games!

Who can join the DYC?

Any practicing Catholic in the Diocese of New Ulm entering grades 10-12 interested in following Jesus.

HOw do I join the DYC?

By filling out an application (and having a parent and parish leader fill one out for you as well), sending it to Kevin Losleben at the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry, interviewing, and being accepted to be a part of the DYC. More is explained on the application. You may either manually fill out an application or do it digitally either by emailing it or filling out the forms below.
