OEEC Virtual Events

In light of the current climate, the OEEC has suspended many previously scheduled in-person events. However, this time of physical distance will not stop us from continuing to connect using virtual means! Check out this list of upcoming webinars, meetings, and conversations hosted by the OEEC which will be taking place virtually. Looking for information about our in-person events? Click this page.

Christus Vivit Virtual Study Group

The OEEC will be breaking open Christus Vivit, the apostolic exhortation of Pope Francis to young people and to the entire people of God. This document challenges each of us to consider the ways we can serve young people enthusiastically and joyfully, and invites them into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church. 
All who have a heart for serving young people (both youth and young adults) and engaging them in the life of the Church are invited to attend!
We especially invite:
  • pastors and parochial vicars;
  • priest chaplains to high schools and colleges;
  • Catholic school teachers and campus ministers;
  • youth ministers;
  • leaders of young adult ministries;
  • parish catechetical leaders and catechists;
  • sacramental preparation coordinators;
  • and beyond!
If you have ever said “Where are all the young people??” or “I wish we had more young people engaged in our parish,” you are welcome too! 
Due to recent changes within the structure of the OEEC, we are postponing these meetings until May 2021.  Please feel free to register, we will send you an email announcing the dates as soon as they are set. 
We will be using the NFCYM study guide Christus Vivit: The Pathway to Accompaniment as a resource. (It is also expected that attendees will have read Christus Vivit itself, freely accessible by clicking.)
We look forward to this rich series of conversations and hope you will join us! If you have any qestions, please contact us
