Supported by Archbishop Timothy Costelloe SDB, this is our mandate, as an official agency of the Catholic Church in the Archdiocese of Perth, WA. It’s kind of like our mission – who we are, who we serve and what matters to us.
I, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Perth, mandate Catholic Youth Ministry to assist the Archdiocese in
fulfilling its responsibilities in furthering the Mission of the Church, in accordance with the beliefs, values, traditions, and social teaching of the Catholic Church.
Catholic Youth Ministry is the official agency for youth ministry in the Archdiocese of Perth. It serves all young people from 12 to 30 years of age, youth and young adult groups, parishes, schools, tertiary institutions, movements, and organisations, to lead and support them in youth ministry, to further the Mission of our Church.
The Committee of Management is appointed by me and governed by my endorsement of the Constitution which provides its brief to operate Catholic Youth Ministry. The Committee of Management will consist of a diverse group of key stakeholders who are invested in our mission and the young people we serve.
The Director is appointed by me following a recommendation by the Committee of Management and is appointed to manage the day-to-day affairs of Catholic Youth Ministry.
This Mandate is given for five years from the first day of May 2023.
Most Rev Timothy Costelloe SDB
ARCHBISHOP OF PERTH
