2015 is a year of change and new beginnings for Catholic Youth Ministry Perth as we bid farewell one staff and welcome three more.
Milller Lokanata, part time youth ministry worker and web administrator has been a valuable member of Catholic Youth Ministry Perth for the last year and a half. His gifts in anything technology has been a great asset in enhancing and increasing our social media and website reach.
Miller formerly worked with CYM Director, Anita Parker during World Youth Day 2008 in the Perth office. After WYD he then travelled to the USA for mission with Lifeteen. On his return to Perth, Miller joined the CYM Team in the beginning of 2013, focusing on youth ministry, web administration and developing videos.
Miller will be remembered for his generosity and willingness to serve the young people of Perth. His departure will surely be missed by many, especially those whom he had encountered in his many days at CYM. We wish him all the best as he moves to pursue new dreams and follow God’s plan for him.
As we say goodbye to an old staff member and friend we welcome three new beautiful ladies to the CYM Team, Kim Hodgson, Marian Dela Fuente and Nessya Santoso.
Kim Hodgson is a former Events Coordinator for CA Australia and an active parishioner at St Thomas More, Bateman. We are now blessed to have her as the new Events Coordinator for Catholic Youth Ministry Perth. She works four days a week at the office and studies one day at Acts 2 Bible College, doing a Certificate in Christian Leadership and Youth Ministry. Her organisational skills and event expertise is certainly a valuable addition to the team at CYM.
Nessya and Marian are in a unique role sharing the job title of Web and Multi Media designer in a part time capacity. Nessya who is a full time Media and Communications student at Curtin University works at CYM one day per week, and Marian a graduate in B. Arts Double Major in Digital Design and Creative Advertising Graphic Design work two days per week. Their technical skills and creativity will definitely take CYM to a new level of heights when it comes to design, web development and media.
We are looking forward to a dynamic 2015 with these new addition to the CYM Team.
