Parish Leadership Assemblies (formerly PCL/YML Meetings)

Held periodically, the Offices of Religious Education and Youth Ministry offer gatherings for Parish Catechetical Leaders and Youth Ministry Leaders in the Archdiocese of Mobile.

Beginning in the fall of 2016, PCL/YML Meetings became Parish Leadership Assemblies, held online.

These PLA dates will be an online gathering for parish PCLs, YMLs, Hispanic Ministry Leaders, parish pro-life and family life leaders. The offices of Religious Education and Youth Ministry will facilitate gatherings in a “Go To Meeting” type format. Parish leaders can log in from any computer with Internet access and the proper software or listen in over a phone line.  In addition to distributing essential news from the Department of Catholic Education, PLA dates will also focus on a specific matter of importance to parish leaders. Parish leaders can log in for either the morning or evening session – the presentation and information will be the same at both.

Recordings from the 2016-2017 series of Parish Leadership Assemblies are available on YouTube as unlisted videos. Contact the Office of Youth Ministry for more information.

Dates for the 2017-2018 school year are below. PLA gatherings are offered at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Central time online. We hope you can join us!
