HOW CAN YOUTH GIVE BACK?
It's wonderful to see young people not only looking for what they can get, but also looking to serve, in many ways:
Students from Year 5 and above help the priest at Masses. They are a great encouragement to our community (and a great help to our priests). They enjoy serving, feel more connected with Mass, and we aim to organize a "fun day" once a term they and their families to help them connect with each other.
PARISH YOUTH TEAM:
Our wonderful Parish Youth Team is made up of young adult teachers from St Michael's and St John's as well as other young adults from the parish. The Team has grown from 3 members to 11 members - and still growing! We are so grateful for all they have brought to our youth!
Exciting events are held throughout the year, for youth and young adults. Information for these events can be found by visiting the Diocesan webpage www.dow.org.au
