Youths and Young Adults Group

A better world can be built also as a result of your efforts, your desire to change and your generosity. Do not be afraid to listen to the Spirit who proposes bold choices; do not delay when your conscience asks you to take risks in following the Master. The Church also wishes to listen to your voice, your sensitivities and your faith; even your doubts and your criticism. Make your voice heard, let it resonate in communities and let it be heard by your shepherds of souls. St. Benedict urged the abbots to consult, even the young, before any important decision, because “the Lord often reveals to the younger what is best.”

Youth and Young Adults Group meet after the 5.00pm Mass (6:00-7:30pm) on Sundays.  All are welcome!

We took the time to deepen our Faith by living friendship, by playing and having fun together, by meeting other young people of our Diocese, by participating in community services, by sharing our doubts or queries about our Christian Catholic faith.

Our activities for the year may include…

Meet other youth groups
Movie nights
Art projects
Sports challenges
Games, quiz night….
Hiking

And many more…

All youths are welcome!

Since the Church is Universal and because we believe that cultural diversity is a wealth, all young people from our parish are welcome!

We are working hard to become a parish that is youth friendly, where everyone, but particularly young people feel welcome.

The facilitator of the group is: Nikos Palaiologos.

Our Values are:

  • Being Christ centred
  • Having fun
  • Being welcoming and accepting
  • Building each other up

Would you find it hard to come to a group where you don’t know anyone? Everyone is made to feel welcome, our leaders make sure no one will is left out or on their own. We work really hard to make sure everyone fits in and there’s something for everyone.

If I don’t like an activity will I be made to do it?
No, we encourage you to try new things, but if there’s something you really don’t want to try then that’s fine.

“Dear young people, the Lord, the Church, the world are waiting for your answer to the unique call that each one receives in this life!”
Pope Francis, Vatican City, Feb 22, 2018
