Involuntary Terminations

When you have prayerfully discerned to let your youth minister go, please use the following checklist:

  • First, always call Joe Loeber or the diocesan attorney to let them know of your decision.

  • Provide the employee with termination letter (with or without cause) and effective dates.

  • Put copy in personnel file.

  • Make arrangements for the employee to collect their personal belongings.  This can be done immediately or schedule a later time (possibly after hours to allow some privacy).

  • Communicate employee departure to staff.

  • Communicate employee departure to parents.

  • When possible, make a plan to thank them for their ministry and to prayerfully send them off.
