With 2018 being “The Year of the Youth”, we have taken the opportunity to establish a Youth Group under the spiritual leadership of
Fr Jerald.  There are two separate groups, one for older youth (aged 13 – 25) and one for younger youth (aged 7 – 12).
 
The purpose of these groups is to create friendship groups for youth to support one another in their faith journey and bring them more closely into the life of the parish and the wider community.  
 
The groups meet once a month to explore faith together and to enjoy each other’s company through music, games, social functions, volunteer works, fundraising and other faith enrichment activities.  There are also be opportunities for leadership within the groups as well as through serving the parish community.
 
We invite our youth to participate in the planning of activities so everyone can become involved and enjoy the gatherings.
 
Both groups meet on the first Saturday of the month in the Worship Area between 4.30 pm and 5.30 pm  The groups gather together at the start of the session and then break-up into junior and senior groups for separate activities.
 
Our Lady of the Pines Parish is committed to ensuring a child safe community, caring for the safety and wellbeing of our children.  Everyone is welcome, so bring your friends, siblings, cousins and whoever you think might be interested!
