Supporting youth has always been a top priority in the Diocese. A Diocesan Youth Coordinator is an established position in the Youth Ministry Office.

The prime role of the Coordinator and Youth Ministry Office staff is to create an environment where young people can develop a meaningful relationship with God and grow as disciples of Jesus Christ.  Building a sustainable ministry to young people is a prime focus.

An important way of establishing such a ministry is to support, train, and enable the people throughout the Diocese who work in youth ministry. They may work as volunteers or in paid positions.  Offering training and guidance to develop a growing group of skilled youth workers and helpers across the Diocese is seen as paramount.  

The Youth Ministry Office also helps equip young people in their faith, and to challenge them to think about their futures, by organising mission outreach trips, live-in weekends, and other specialised programmed events. 

In addition, the Youth Ministry Office staff are involved in consultancy work with the leadership of parishes and ministry units to help them develop a sustainable youth ministry.  Developing partnerships and building relationships with like minded organisations in the local communities is also part of the role.
