I have come that you may have life and have it to the full (John 10:10)
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 young people aged between 16-30 years old.
Encourage, support and promote youth ministry activities that provide a balance of the five essential strands: prayer, study, sacraments, social and service.
To be responsive to the needs of youth ministers in the Archdiocese of Melbourne, supporting and encouraging their work in parishes, schools or organisations through providing opportunities for training, information sharing and resource development.
To work with parishes, schools and organisations within the Archdiocese of Melbourne to bring about positive experiences of the Catholic faith for young people and build a greater understanding of the role of youth ministry in their community.
