Youth ministries in the Anglican Church of Canada seeks to support the work of youth leaders across the country, consult with dioceses on issues relating to youth ministry, and help the Church vision for a future that dynamically engages youth and young adults. 

As the pandemic drew down in 2022, the Youth Secretariat did something new. In November, they held a Rhythms of Renewal Youth Leader retreat, instead of their usual “skill-building” conference. Youth Animator Sheilagh McGlynn and her team recognized that so many involved in this critical ministry needed to rediscover their passion and call to serve and lead after the exhausting toll of the pandemic.
