Reaching the Young Church

As our culture has become increasingly secular, the Catholic church faces a serious threat: a shortage of young faithful. Unlike past generations of steady churchgoers, the number of millennials involved in their faith has slowly declined, posing a serious danger to the future of the church as a whole. Such is the perilous trend, but fortunately the Church has responded with a solution: an increased focus on evangelizing to youth. Among those at the helm of this movement is Doug Tooke, youth minister and former Neuhoff School of Ministry student.

Called to Serve

The University of Dallas' mission is to form students in intellectual and moral virtues to prepare them to lead and serve their communities in a problematic and changing world. This is part one of a three-part series examining the "new renaissance" of programs at the University of Dallas that support UD's mission to form servant-leaders.
