Welcome to St. Thomas More Youth Ministry!
We have two active youth groups in the parish run by dedicated youth leaders. This team is under the guidance of our Youth Co-ordinator Manu Bennett and parish priest Fr Alfredo Garcia. Manu is employed by the parish to oversee all youth activities, she also the North Shore representitive on the Diocesan Youth Advisory Committee.
What do we try and offer through youth ministry?…..
1. Friendship and Fellowship – Meet other like minded young Catholics in your parish who can support you in your faith journey.
2. Spiritual Development – Learn about the beauty and truths of our faith. It is not enough to just know what we believe but you must understand and be able to explain it in order to truly love and live the faith. We strive to foster in our youth an appreciation and love for the Eucharist.
3. Service Orientated – We create opportunities for our young people to share their talents through service. Each group is encouraged to do an apostolic project as part of their activities. All our groups also participate in diocesan events and projects.
