The Parish Sunday 6pm Mass is designated specially as a Youth Mass. There are various ministries our youth may be involved in:
- Youth choir – singers and musicians lead the congregation at various parts of the Mass in worship.
- Readers – the first and second readings, responsorial psalm and Gospel acclamation are read by the youth.
- Altar Servers – youth assist the priest at this Mass as junior or senior servers where available.
Our parish is under the care of the Salvatorian order. Salvatorian Youth Australia sponsor various youth events/activities throughout the year, such as Praise and Worship nights and gatherings. These events are advertised in the Parish bulletin, or see the Salvatorian Youth Australia group at Facebook, Salvatorian Youth Australia.

The next Australian Catholic Youth Festival was scheduled to be held in December 2021 in a rural setting. However the coronavirus interrupted those plans. The next Festival is now scheduled for Melbourne in December 2024.
Other Youth Activities
Throughout the year there may be other Parish opportunities specifically for youth to be involved with, for example Broken Bay Diocese events and leading the Good Friday Stations of the Cross. These activities are advertised in the Parish bulletin.
Audio Visual Systems
The Projector ministry is an ideal opportunity to gain experience with the computer based methods used to operate our church audio visual systems. Projectors are used by the Parish for the display of lyrics and selected parts of the liturgy of the Mass. Within the welcoming environment of the Parish, young people can expand upon their knowledge of these systems in a live environment by joining the team of volunteers running the church projectors. Additional information is available at the link below.
