Recipients of 2023 SLIM awards and certificates announced

This summer the Diocese of Owensboro’s Office of Youth Ministry recognized the recipients of the 2023 Servant Leaders in Ministry (SLIM) awards. Based on nominations from the parishes, the youth ministry office selects up to 18 youth from around the diocese who have made outstanding contributions to their parishes, communities and the diocese.

‘A new horizon, a decisive direction’

As I go around the diocese trying to aid parish youth ministry efforts, my message has become the need for 1) adults who care (as noted in the January issue of The Western Kentucky Catholic), 2) opportunities for the faith lives of youth to come alive, and 3) opportunities for youth to live out their faith as disciples.
