"I have come that you may have life and have it to the full"
Our mission within the Archdiocese of Melbourne is to inspire and engage young people
in the life and mission of the Catholic Church.
We will do this through initiating, supporting and encouraging youth ministry in Catholic parishes, schools and organisations that:
- Fosters in young people a personal relationship with Jesus Christ especially through prayer and the sacraments
- Encourages young people to live their lives centred in the teachings of Christ and the Church
- Inspires leadership among young people in the Church and in society
- Empowers young people to witness to their faith in Christ through service to others.
We support youth ministry that ministers to secondary school aged young people and young adults.
Our Patron Saints: The office is guided by the words pray, witness, serve, and we see these lived out in the lives of
Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati and St. Mary of the Cross MacKillop.
