THANK YOU CHRIS!

After 4 years at the Archdiocese of Sydney, Chris Lee has resigned from his Team Leader at Sydney Catholic Youth to take up a new and exciting opportunity at the Diocese of Broken Bay.

We are so grateful for all that he has done in building up Sydney Catholic Youth into the agency that it is today, as well as the support that he has provided for youth and young adults over the years.

In his announcement, Chris wrote the following:

"All young people of Sydney should be confident in the belief that Archbishop Anthony has always believed in you and now, more than ever, we need your energy and enthusiasm to bring our Country back to God.

While it might be scary at times be courageous and give your time and energy for the mission of the Church. Archbishop Anthony says all the time - "the young people of the Church are not the church of tomorrow but the Church of the here and now"."


Please keep him in your prayers as he begins his new mission working closely with Bishop Anthony Randazzo.

Thank you Chris and God bless!

  From the SCY Team

As we enter this new chapter, we are looking forward to continuing to build upon the foundations laid by Chris and previous SCY team members, as well as seeking new opportunities to further develop the work of Sydney Catholic Youth. We are looking forward to sharing our plans with you soon!

From 28 August 2021, all enquiries related to youth ministry and support can be directed to John Nguyen, Youth Officer in Sydney Catholic Youth, at john.nguyen@sydneycatholic.org or 0432 342 039

 

 

LOCKDOWN REFLECTION

Peace possible despite restrictions

By Fr Josh Miechels

"Lockdown is not fun. But it doesn't mean it can't be lived peacefully.
Especially when you're in another country, in a language you speak clumsily, missing basic goods like your friends and favourite places and argileh and sunshine, doing a new task which deprives you even of the people around you.

This was my experience arriving in France six months ago, in the middle of Covidfest with a 6pm curfew, a 10km movement radius and most things closed – a situation which endured for some unwelcome months..."
