Parish youth ministry

Many of the parishes in the Diocese of Melbourne have some form of ministry to young people. These consist of a range of activities like:

  • breakfast clubs
  • homework clubs
  • community outreach events
  • outreach into schools
  • activities for young people within the parish
  • bible studies
  • youth services
  • youth camps
  • and more

Some ministries are in their infancy, some have grown to maturity, some are struggling and others thriving. We acknowledge the sacrificial service of the many volunteers involved in these ministries, the dedicated service of the few employed youth ministers, and the visionary leadership of clergy involved in doing ministry to youth.

The regional youth officers are set apart to support parishes in ministry to youth... helping further develop existing ministries, and to start up new ministries.
