SMY@L YOUTH GROUP

Who we are - St.Michael’s Youth group has been run in the Parish since 2000. It is the longest running Parish group just for youth. It is a great way for young people to be involved in the Parish community. It is for all young people from Year 5, 6 & lower secondary levels (from any school). The group is called SMY@L – St.Michael’s Youth at Latitude 38-11-41. We meet at St.Michael’s Mackillop Hall a few times during school terms on a Friday night and run a variety of activities and events. We provide a safe and friendly environment where young people can get together with friends and make new ones, we are an inclusive group where everyone is welcome! Young people can begin to feel a sense of belonging when they regularly attend youth group and get to know other people in a setting other than school. It is also great in maintaining friendships across a variety of local schools. Our motto is fun, faith, friends!

Current youth program details are located in the Church foyers.

A GREAT PHOTO!
We certainly had a Mass with a difference last Sunday evening! Our Youth Mass in which our young people took on the roles of Welcomers, Lectors, Altar Servers, Commentator, Musicians, Singers, Offertory Gift Bearers and Money Collectors with great reverence and style.
How fortunate we are to have members of the ‘future church’ learning with great enthusiasm and awe, and spending hours and hours practising to ensure that ‘their’ Mass is a respectful, reverent celebration of the Eucharist.
As you can see from the photo, we were privileged to have Bishop Michael Apochi from the Diocese of Otukpo in Nigeria celebrate the Mass, he had alongside him four priests from the Diocese of Otukpo: our very own Fr Francis Otobo, Fr Edwin (Morwell), Fr Solomon (Sale), and Fr James (Canberra). Fr Joseph (Cranbourne) was unable to join in the celebration of the Mass here on Sunday evening.
We are very grateful to Bishop Michael and the Diocese of Otukpo for the
presence of these priests here in Australia, working among us.
