Young adults involved in the diocese’s Project Timothy discipleship formation program gathered May 7 at Queen’s House of Retreat and Renewal in Saskatoon to celebrate, pray and reflect on the past year.

The group focused on”the lights received, the gifts discovered and possible ways to continue to grow, mature and share with others the path of faith,” said Sr. Marta Piano of the Verbum Dei missionary fraternity, who coordinates the program along with diocesan Evangelization and Mission Leader John Hickey.

After some two years of discernment, prayer and planning, a new Youth and Young Adult Ministry Office was launched last year in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon, with a renewed focus on discipleship and accompaniment.

The launch included the introduction of Project Timothy, a leadership development program for young adults who have a desire to share their faith and reach out to other youth and young adults.
