GIFT Youth

GIFT Youth is an excellent opportunity for young people aged 12-16 years old to socialise, learn, pray, and deepen their faith as Catholics.  We meet twice a month, once on a Saturday morning, and once on a Friday evening for a Social.  The aim is to encounter Jesus, grow together in faith, and empower you to witness joyfully to the Gospel by becoming full members of our Catholic community.

To this end, participating in GIFT Youth is a requirement for preparation for the gift of Confirmation.

GIFT Youth Saturday Sessions

At GIFT Youth we begin by celebrating Mass together with our families.  After Mass, the GIFT Youth group meet separately to socialise, eat donuts, play games, and explore an aspect of the faith at a deeper level than primary school-aged children.

This will be an opportunity to get to know each other in person; ask deeper questions, engage with and grow in faith together; and support one another as you learn what it means to be a young Catholic in today’s world.

We encourage GIFT Youth parents to join our GIFT families for the morning to celebrate Mass, get to know each other over refreshments and to consider how you can support your family’s faith journey.  When GIFT Youth are meeting, we will take this opportunity to meet together for a focussed discussion.
