We’ve implemented plans to get you involved online via social media and group video conferencing and we’ve begun to come back together in socially-distanced ways. Come here often for updates, invites, and resources to help you guys maintain fellowship and grow in your faith during this time. Now might also be a great time to go back through the blog posts and watch videos, explore links, and read articles on topics that you missed or want to learn more about.
Information about ZOOM
How I am keeping your teens protected: I am following these best practice guidelines from Protect Young Eyes to make sure there is no “zoom-bombing” or similar issues. I make sure the Zoom room is password protected so only those with the link or password have the ability to enter and I turn on the “waiting room” option so that each potential participant needs to be approved by me to enter. I don’t enable participant screen sharing so nothing can be automatically shared without host approval. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!!
To learn how to work Zoom, check out these resources or just reach out to me! You can do practice joining before to get comfortable with it.
To join meeting on your computer using the meeting link (right now on the blog, but will also email/remind message it out):https://www.youtube.com/embed/vFhAEoCF7jg?rel=0&autoplay=1&cc_load_policy=1
To join a meeting from your smartphone, simply download the app (found in itunes or google play store) and then click “join meeting” with the id (click on drop down for ios or android for help): https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362193-Joining-a-Meeting
Expectations/Code of Conduct:
– Youth are not required to join the meeting with video. There is an audio only option, should you feel more comfortable attending that way or do not have a video-enabled device (you can call in using a phone).
– Please dress as if meeting in person; your clothing should be modest and appropriate
(no pajamas please).
– Please make sure nothing inappropriate or unseemly is in your surroundings when
broadcasting video and audio. Two-way streaming from a restroom is never acceptable.
– Parents are invited and encouraged to attend if they would like.
JULY & AUGUST: Adulting 101 Series
This month we will be focusing on some life skills that our adult volunteer CORE team and various parishioners want to pass along to the teens. We’ll look at each topic through the lens of our Catholic faith and hopefully share the tips, tricks, and necessary knowledge we’ve learned along the way (both the hard and easy way!) and hope we can help equip our teens with some skills to “adult” in life!
