Youth Group
Our Youth Group meets on the first Sunday of each month at 10.30 am in the PEACE Centre.  
 
Youth between the ages of 13 and 25 years are invited to join the senior group, while those between the ages of 7 and 12 years  are invited to join the junior group.
 
This is a great opportunity for the youth of the parish to get to know one another socially and to grow spiritually.
 
For further information, please phone the Parish Office on 9841 8354.
 
Youth Group Mass
 
On Sunday, 6 October, the Mass was animated with the participation of our Youth Group members.  From commentating to readings and music, the parish enjoyed a vibrant youth-led celebration.  The occasion marked an exciting date too – the first anniversary of the Youth Group and the birth of the first ever youth band at OLOP!  After Mass we mingled and shared a delicious cake over coffee with everyone to commemorate the anniversary.  Marching into our second year, we are looking forward to seeing more youth involved in the parish, growth of the Youth Group, as well as more music from the youth band.
 
If you know any young people with musical knowledge or a good voice who might be interested in joining the youth choir/band, or just the Youth Group generally, please feel free to speak to Teresina after Sunday Mass or email her at teresina1129@gmail.com.

Youth Ministry Workshops
On 31 August, the Archdiocesean Office for Youth held a day of Youth Ministry Workshops at the Thomas Carr Centre in East Melbourne.  Four members represented the OLOP Youth Group to take part in seven workshops over the course of the day.  With each workshop covering a different aspect of running a Youth Ministry, we were inspired with vibrant ideas to grow the budding Youth Group at OLOP.  We also had the chance to connect with other Youth Ministers from around Melbourne to share ideas and exchange advice.  The day concluded with an interview and photo op with Archbishop Peter Comensoli.  We hope to see more young people at Youth Group soon!
