YOUTH MINISTRY OFFICER AT ST PAUL’S COLLEGE WITNESSES TO THE FAITH
Each year, students from St Paul’s Catholic Secondary College graduating class are invited to apply for traineeships at the College. Applications are also encouraged from graduating students attending other schools in the Diocese.
The Leader of Evangelisation at St Paul’s College, Mr William Pollock, said that the College is blessed to have a Youth Ministry Officer as part of the team. “For the ninth year in a row, we have employed one or two full-time Youth Ministry Officers,” said Will.
“Youth Ministry Officers (or YMO as they are known) are passionate about their faith in Jesus Christ and want to share that with the students at St Paul's”, said Will.
Will believes that faith is "caught and not taught" and that YMO’s are young modern-day witnesses to the faith for St Paul’s students. The YMO organise retreats and reflection days, Masses and liturgies and assist in Religion classes. Will said that St Paul’s students are able to see the person of Jesus lived out and through the YMO. “Through the presence and work of the YMO our students are invited to consider their own relationship with God and are supported and encouraged to explore and deepen this relationship,” said Will.
