Symon Smyth-Kirk – we say farewell to Symon who has been temporarily on staff at CYM since August this year. In such a short time Symon has been involved in running a number of retreats, youth groups, and other CYM events. He has been a vibrant and faith-filled member of the team and now moves on to take his zeal for his faith into the classroom next year. Thank you Symon for all of your ministry throughout the last few months & may God bless you in your teaching ministry next year.
Fr Thomas Zureich – we sadly say farewell to our CYM Chaplain for 2013. Fr Thomas joined the team this year and has been a part of our WYD journey to Brazil, many retreats, our weekly Holy Hour and other youth events throughout the year. He has assisted the spiritual life of so many young people that our office has supported throughout the year. We were unaware of his departure at the final CYM gathering for the year, but we would like to say a huge THANK YOU to Fr Thomas through this newsletter for all of his work and support throughout 2013. God bless you in your priestly ministry.
