Youth Apostolate

The parish of St Francis Xavier & St Clare is deeply invested in the formation and support of our young parishioners. Over the last few years the parish's youth apostolate has taken on a variety of forms. Currently we host the following two groups:
SFX Youth 
Ages 18-30 | Relaunching early 2018
SFX Youth supports the young adults of our parish. As with Pizza & Prayer, it has three key elements: prayer, study and social. While SFX Youth hasn't been running for the last couple of years, it will be relaunching in early 2018. Keep an eye on the parish website further updates.
Pizza & Prayer 
Ages 11-17 | Saturdays @ 6.30pm | During School Term | The Friars Room
Pizza & Prayer is geared towards young people from grade six through to years eleven and twelve. It aims to provide opportunities for our teenage parishioners to learn to pray, study their faith, and get to know other committed Catholics their age. The group is actively supported by priests, young adults and parents. We meet every Saturday at 6.30pm in The Friars Room, adjacent to St Francis Xavier Church.
