A Thriving Youth Group

by Vincent Haber

Since May of this year, around 15-20 youth and young adults gathered fortnightly at Holy Family Parish, Maddington and  learnt more about the message of love and sexuality as God intended it to be with the five part course Freedom to Love.

The course which is by the popular author and presenter of Theology of the Body, Christopher West, has been a widespread tool for many youth groups around the world, as the course lays out a convincing and refreshing road map to living a life of freedom.

Volunteer Leader Sheldon Burke of Holy Family Parish said, “The course was well received by the young people and that they were looking forward to more formation, since it ended two weeks ago.”

This dynamic group is now looking into tackling the challenging Catholicism Project by Father Robert Barron in the next few weeks as a follow up and to meet the needs of the group.

With a great leadership team, awesome formation courses and the guidance of the Vincentian spirituality, the young people of Maddington parish are surely to grow in their faith and develop into a strong and solid community.
