What We Do

ACYM has experienced a lack of full-time staff for a significant period of time which unfortunately has resulted in us not fulfilling our role of overseeing the young people of the Diocese. With the start-up of a new ACYM team we plan to change this.

We would like to welcome Mr Mark Davis who we have appointed as our full-time ‘Children’s and Youth Missioner (Training)’. Mark will be joining us shortly and we are excited for him to share his wealth of knowledge and experience with us.

We have also advertised more positions which we hope to fill in the near future to continue to expand our team. 

We have plans to increase our involvement with young people in the following areas; training, faith formation pathways, resources and events.

 

Education and Training

ACYM plans to equip those involved in children and youth ministry with training education and opportunities. We anticipate running classes in Children and Youth Ministry. These may be part of the Certificate in Theology in 2018.

 

Faith Formation Pathways

We are dedicated to ensuring life-long faith formation is a part of our children and youth ministry and in order to do so we plan to focus on the development of targeted resources, events, experiences, education and training with the aim of guiding young people in their transitions between faith formation pathways.

 

Resources

We currently have an online resource library available through Libib, which allows you to borrow hard copy books for free! There are all kinds of books to borrow for everyone including children, teenagers, young adults, parents, couples, youth leaders, Sunday school teachers, and many more! A Libib App is available for both Apple and Android users so you can borrow books on the go. Fill out our Libib sign up form online to create an account and start borrowing books. 

 

Events

We plan to organise a range of camps, retreats, career days, gap year programs and pilgrimages which aim to assist children and youth to begin and continue life-long faith formation. This year ACYM will be organising the Children’s Advent Festival which will be held at Christmas in Fremantle, make sure that you keep an eye out for this in the near future!
