Introducing Catholic Youth Parramatta's

"The Word became flesh, he lived among us, and we saw his glory, the glory that he has from the Father as only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth." - John 1:14
Humility in a Manger

Advent invites us to prepare for the coming of Jesus, our Savior. Our Lord did not come to us as a domineering king. He, instead, came in the night, in a lowly manger stripped of the entitlements expected of a king on earth. There Mary and Joseph shared the most beautiful experience - life and joy. In the simple and precious moments of this season, may we encourage one another to be present to each other. To be humble before God and give thanks for the year that was and to ask for His blessings for the coming year. We hope some of the resources shared below will spark ideas for you and your team as you wrap up a big year. 

Resources to share
Running a Youth Night
From the team at Catholic Youth Parramatta, thank you for your passion for the youth you serve and for your hard work in youth ministry this year. We wish you a very Merry Christmas with your loved ones and a Happy New Year. We look forward to serving with you in 2019!

p.s It's been a big year! We'll be sharing highlights very soon. Follow us on our social media platforms for all updates. 
Christmas Mass Times

Many of us will be making our way to our local parishes to celebrate the birth of Jesus. This Christmas, we encourage you to invite your family and friends to celebrate Mass with you. Maybe there are a few of your loved ones who would love the invitation to come with you. The Diocese of Parramatta has upload local Mass Times for you to view. 
Prayer is an essential part of your meetings. In this section we suggest a prayer or a creative way to engage in prayer to encourage young people to deepen their prayer lives. This may include songs, guided prayers or meditations. In the Spirit of Christmas, we share an album of Catholic Christmas Classics for you to listen and pray with.

ACYF 2017: Open New Horizons for Spreading Joy

We are reminded that just a year ago, we experienced an amazing national event that gave young people the opportunity to encounter God in many different and profound ways. Launching the Year of Youth, the Australian Catholic Youth Festival, brought to life a new generation of young people enthusiastic about the faith and taking ownership of their call to evangelise.
