The Vincent D. Youngberg, C.P. Spiritual Formative Ministries Fund

March 27, 2015

The Passionist Province of St. Paul of the Cross and Community at Jamaica, NY, is pleased to announce the establishment of: The Vincent D. Youngberg, C.P. Spiritual Formative Ministries Fund

The ministry incorporates much of Fr. Vincent’s preaching message, namely: keeping alive the memory of the Passion of Jesus Christ; appropriating of the gift and guidance of the Holy Spirit in our lives; and the support and encouragement of Laity in ministry within our Church.

This Fund will directly support the ongoing development of this collaborative ministry, which is based at the Passionist ministerial site in Jamaica, NY. The focus will include: spiritual formative ministries; parish missions; days of prayer; the gift of discernment through teaching, and retreat experiences; the training of laity for ongoing leadership roles and for the sharing of the gift of discernment with others in a variety of ways; and resource development. This ministry includes a mobile, collaborative outreach to any Passionist Province site as well as to any parish, college campus, or retreat house, by invitation.
