Parish Pods Project

The Parish Pods Project gathers a group of parishes in a given region to organize events for Young Adult Ministry together, collectively sharing the workload. 

Additionally, these pods allow for a larger gathering of young adults from the region from a variety of parishes, as opposed to young adults from a single parish where a critical mass of young adults may not be present.

Parish Pod Design

  • Members: Each "pod" consists of a "Lead Parish" and 3-4 other parish members. 
  • Lead Parish Obligation: The lead parish constructs a consistent monthly young adult event over the course of a season (Summer, Fall, Advent, Lent, Easter). 
  • Member Parish Obligation: The remaining parishes "rotate" an event each month among the partners. (e.g. Parish 2 does an event in June, Parish 3 an event in July, etc.) This allows for two young adult events to be hosted every month in a given season.
  • Network Obligations: The Pods provide their own social networking either through existing parish social networking structures or a collective social networking arm of the pod.  All events can be found on our events page on the diocesan website as well.

For more information on how to get your parish or young adult group connected to a pod, contact Mike Hayes.
