THE OFFICE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE

Raising up a generation for Christ

The Office for Young People is an Archdiocesan office that ministers to young people from 16 to 35 years of age. We seek to raise up a generation of young people passionately in love with Jesus and His Church and committed to a lifestyle of discipleship and communion. We hope that you’ll make yourself at home here and explore. Don’t be a stranger and do check back for news on our upcoming events, encouraging testimonies and more!

Our Mission

WHAT WE DO

Our approach to the ministry of young people is centered around our four key values. They are Encounter, Discipleship, Communion, Mission.

encounter

As shown in the life of St Paul, the Christian life begins with an encounter of the love and mercy of the Word Incarnate. Thus, our work begins with meeting people where they are in life, and leading them to encounter Jesus.

discipleship

The next crucial step is to respond to Jesus’ invitation to, “Come follow me.” We help young people realise what it means to follow Jesus, and encourage them to make the life changes that are required of a disciple of Jesus.

communion

The consequence of our communion has to be a united effort to, “Go and make disciples of all the nations.” Our walk with Jesus should culminate in a desire for the explicit proclamation of the Kerygma.

mission

Being a disciple of Jesus necessitates the discovery of our unique place in the Body of Christ – His Church. OYP emphasises an ecclesial spirituality, and facilitates both individual and corporate expressions of being Church.
