St.Michael’s Youth group has been run in the Parish since 2000. 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. 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.
Current youth program details are located in the Church foyers.
For any queries please call Louise Varsaci 51750877 or email Louise at firstname.lastname@example.org
