Youth Ministry

Welcome to the homepage for Youth Ministry at Sydney Catholic Schools.

The Australian Catholics Bishops Conference vision document for Australian Catholic Youth Ministry is called “Anointed and Sent”. It sets three goals:

  • To foster the personal and spiritual growth of each young person.
  • To draw young people into responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the Catholic faith community.
  • To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.

Sydney Catholic Schools is committed to these goals and to the ongoing growth and development of Youth Ministry in the life of the Church in Sydney.
