Youth Ministry can mean anything provided for people between the ages of 5 and 35 in this day and age to encourage them in their Catholic faith. This can and does change very frequently!
Here at St Mark’s, we are always looking for people who are interested in taking on leadership and support roles!
CFC Youth for Christ
ST MARK’S CHILDREN’S CHOIR leads the music on the 3rd Sunday of the month at the 10am Mass. They practice following the Mass on the other Sunday’s. All are welcome! Contact the Parish Office for more details.
ST MARKS CFC – YOUTH FOR CHRIST was established at St Mark’s parish in September 2010. A ministry of Couples for Christ, CFC-YFC follows a strong programme building up young Catholics. CFC-YFC members are supported in their faith journey and have led several camps and/or events offered for all youth at St Mark’s parish. They also take part in conferences and gatherings for CFC-YFC members for all of Oceania. The 3rd Sunday of each month sees these youth leading the music at the 6.30pm Mass. They’ve even led the occasional Praise and Worship session and holiday Fun Days… For more information please visit FB page https://www.facebook.com/groups/1445327642457422/ or contact the Parish Office.
Youth ministry is all our efforts in making church real for younger people. Our aim is to provide a way for young people to experience God and learn to grow in faith with a relationship with Jesus and the community He established.
As life gets busier and busier it is important to take time out to relax and have fun. Many activities/events that have been planned recently for youth have centred around games, food and pausing to thank God for the blessings we have. These have been a heap of fun, but we’d love more people join us!
If you’d like more information about getting involved with the youth ministry at St Mark’s parish please contact Joanne van Heerden – she’d love to hear from you! Ph 021 114-3374 or 535-9583 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
St Mark’s has designated the 6.30 Sunday evening mass a youth mass (except the last Sunday of each month). A dedicated group of young musicians meet from 5pm on the 1st & 3rd Sundays of each month to practice and then lead music at mass. Others are welcome to join us, as long as you come to that practice! The CFC Youth for Christ group leads the music on the 3rd Sunday of the month. We always encourage youth to attend the Diocesan Youth Mass at St Patricks Cathedral on the last Sunday of each month.
