As of Thursday 13 February the Archdiocesan Office for Youth (AOY), and all the other mission agencies that have been operating as part of the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne will close to make way for a new model of supporting mission in the Archdiocese. The new mission model consists of three key teams that will continue to serve parishes, youth groups, families and communities. More information about the three teams will be available in the coming months.
In the meantime, for all your enquiries about youth ministry, we ask that you contact the new team leader for Discipleship, Nathan Costin at Nathan.Costin@cam.org.au
or 03 9287 5526. Nathan will be able to assist with booking the Melbourne NET team and can also answer any other inquiries.
If you have any queries regarding professional standards and child protection, the best port of call is the Professional Standards Unit who are happy to help you with any issues: firstname.lastname@example.org
or 9926 5621.
Holy Hour will continue as normal – we hope you are still able to make it on a Thursday night at the Cathedral form 6:30-7:30pm. Please contact Nathan if you want to be involved with the music or have notices or announcements.
Finally, the members of the AOY would like to thank you for all your support and care for youth across the Melbourne Archdiocese. For those of you who are youth ministry leaders, your work is an inspiration to the whole Church. We thank you for your service and dedication, we applaud you and hope that you continue to put your faith in the young people of the Church. For those of you who are young people, we thank you for your ongoing contribution to our Church and pray that you will always know the light of Christ in your hearts.
