Diocesan Youth Leadership Breakfast 8 May 2010.
The Diocesan Youth Leadership Breakfast held on 8th May saw a large number of youth leaders and others involved in youth ministry attend the Social Justice and Child Protection Sessions held at St Patrick's Cathedral Hall, Parramatta.

Thankyou to those who attended and a special thankyou to  the presenters: Evan Ellis, Diocesan Social Justice Co-ordinator and to Paul Davis, Diocesan Child Protection Manager. Evan presented on Social Justice issues on a global and local level. He highlighted the importance that love plays in making change happen in the world today. Paul expanded on Child Protection issues in Social Networking and answered many questions regarding this. (A revision of the Youth Safety Manual, will be issued from the Diocesan Youth Office later this year). Both topics are very relevant in today's society and so it was important to bring them to the forefront and raise awareness about them!

Thankyou also to St Patrick's Youth Band from Blacktown who did a marvellous job in inspiring those present with their choice of songs. Well done!

Farewell to Anna Vercellone

It was also a wonderful opportunity to thank Anna Vercellone, who has just resigned as Diocesan Youth Co-ordinator for the Diocese of Parramatta. She has done wonderful work with the youth and certainly carried on youth ministry in the Diocese of Parramatta, to greater heights after World Youth Day 08! Though she will be truly missed, we wish her all the best and God's blessings for the future!
