We are looking for aspiring young writers. ages 16 to 25, who would be interested in working with media professionals in Catholic media to hone their media and communications skills.
Because we aim to have a broad cross-section of youth writers from across the country, I would like to extend our YSN program application deadline for your candidates. We would love to be able to have all parts of the Canadian Catholic community, so please extend our invite to your youth ministry. If you have a candidate that you would like to recommend, please have their applications sent to us by July 27th.
For more information, you can also visit our recruitment page here at: http://catholicregister.org/ysn/ysn-application

Thank you very much for your continued support,

I'm Amber Wsiaki, the Catholic Outreach Team Coordinator in St. Malo, MB. In September there will be a team of 5-7 young adults living in community in St. Malo, MB. This team will go through a 2-month formation & training period. After that the team will go around Manitoba ministering in a variety of ways, for example: youth retreats, senior home ministry, youth prison ministry, retreats on Northern Manitoba reserves, and ministry with people with disabilities (physical & mental). The Team's year ends early-June.
Because this team will be living in community at the Catholic School of Evangelization (CSE), I'm looking for 2 live-in staff members to oversee community life. More specifically, these staff members (one male, one female), will mentor and support the Outreach Team members in their various ministry settings, lead some training and formation sessions, and be responsible for meals, cleaning and maintenance of the facility.
The Staff will be paid a monthly stipend and will live at the CSE in St. Malo along with the team. The Staff will report to the Outreach Coordinator, and will be given regular time off, but this is not a "typical job". This is a position in Catholic ministry, and as such, Staff members should have some experience ministering to youth, young adults, and/or adutls.
For more information, contact Amber Wsiaki by phone, 204-347-5396, or by e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to check out the CSE website: www.catholicway.ca.

Resurrection Parish, Regina, Saskatchewan
Requires a full-time Youth Ministry Coordinator
Resurrection Roman Catholic Parish in Regina, Saskatchewan is seeking an enthusiastic youth minister to coordinate programs for youth. We are a growing parish community of 1500 families. Three large Catholic elementary and two large Catholic high schools are affiliated with our parish. This full time position (40 hours/week …flexible hours) requires a candidate who is a practicing Catholic and has a passion for working with youth. Start date: July 2013.

For further information visit our website at www.resurrectionparish.ca or call Father Stephen Bill at 1-306-352-0988
The successful applicant will have a passionate love for God and a passionate love for young people. The position of youth coordinator is primarily relational. It is essential that the youth coordinator does not put a stronger emphasis on programming than on relationships. Consequently, 80% of the job does not happen in the office. It is the Youth Ministry Coordinator’s job to be where the youth are.
The successful applicant will be a dynamic person of prayer, who encourages others to encounter the presence of Christ. He/she will have a vision for youth ministry, and the ability to inspire the parishes to catch that vision.
Youth ministry in the City of Lethbridge is a joint venture between the Parishes of All Saints and St. Martha’s without regard to parish boundaries. We seek to build a Catholic culture where young people from elementary through high school and beyond are welcomed, encouraged, and nurtured in their relationship with Jesus and His Church.
In addition to the above attributes, the successful applicant will ideally have some background in music and liturgy. Previous youth ministry experience would be an advantage, and the ability to work as a team with another Youth Ministry Coordinator. More specific areas of responsibility will be discussed and agreed upon before the commencement of employment.
Length of Ministry Term
● 2-3 Year term with the option of extension upon the agreement of both parties
Salary and Benefits
● $40,000-$45,000 annual salary, plus Diocesan benefits package, to be discussed and agreed up before the commencement of employment.
