For Youth Ministers
Ministry Days is an annual training event where over 2000 ministry leaders, teachers, catechists and volunteers from all over the Diocese of Sacramento gather to get inspired, resourced and formed at over 90 workshops from dynamic Catholic speakers. This is also a great opportunity to network and share ideas with people who minister in similar settings. And we will have time to pray and end our day with Mass with Bishop Soto.
