On a beautiful sunny day last 19th of April over 20 teens from St Francis Parish, Armadale gathered for an afternoon of sport activities at the school grounds of St Francis Xavier Primary School. It was the Youth Building Community Sports Day and BBQ.

Due to the great turnout, a few teams of five were made up and a round robin of basketball game allowed everyone to have a go. The losing team got to stay on the court for another game so players were exhausted by the end of the afternoon!

We welcomed Vincent Haber from Catholic Youth Ministry Perth as he also joined in the fun for the afternoon. He left pretty beat as well – guess which team he was on??  After a few rounds of basketball the young people then moved over to the field for some rounds of soccer.

A delicious sausage sizzle prepared by the parents was a great way to round off the sports day with the teens hungry and exhausted.


All attendees attended the Youth Mass at 6pm. With many joining in with the singing, reading and other parts of the celebration.

Indeed it was a great and fun day for the teens, where they were nourished both spiritually and physically.
