Exciting news!

This morning, the Office of Communications circulated a press release which named Father Stephen DeLacy, Vicar, Office for Formation with Youth and Young Adults. http://archphila.org/the-archdiocese-of-philadelphia-announces-additional-key-leadership-appointments-to-further-its-new-model-for-ministry-and-evangelization-with-youth-and-young-adults/

The Office for Catechetical Formation will be part of this new and exciting structure which will provide a continuum for faith formation from our youngest believers through young adulthood.
The OCF staff are blessed to have Father as our dynamic leader and for the privilege in supporting  Father in his new role.
Please take a moment to read Father DeLacy’s letter of greeting to the D/CRES of the Archdiocese which follows.
