The Youth Ministry seeks to help young people develop a deeper understanding of their faith. This is done through various programmes held in their facility, ‘Joey’s, in The Old School House, Ballycran, helping them to be more effective witnesses of the Gospel message. There is also an emphasis on fun and companionship.
The Youth Ministry is developing and if you are 18 years of age or over and would like to help, please contact the Parish Priest or one of the Youth Leaders.
In January 2015 we ran our first GIFT 1 programme in the Parish.
The GIFT 1 programme – Growing In Faith Together – ran for 6 weeks and was enjoyed by all those who attended. Two of our parents also joined with the leader of the group and enjoyed it as much as the children.
The GIFT Programmes are now a regular part of our Parish life and continue every year, normally during January. Information regarding the GIFT Programmes is always published in the Parish Bulletin. Volunteers to help with the management of the programmes are always needed particularly from among the parents of the children taking part.
