Youth Development Team

About Us

Our Lady of Lourdes promotes Youth Ministry through its Youth Development Team who aim to create a forum for young people to:

  • share social time
  • have a place to raise topics of interest
  • access support
  • participate in praise and worship (Youth Mass)
  • experience opportunities for faith formation

Who is it for?

 All young people are welcome.

 Some activities and events will be split into age groups, ie 13 - 17 and 18+.

What happens?

Young people participate fully in a monthly youth Mass, planning the music, reading, offertory and occasionally giving testimonies of activities they are involved in, for example, caring for the homeless in our community.

Mass is followed by a social event in the hall.  Food and fun are always included.  We share experiences and provide opportunities for young people to explore their faith while giving them space to think about their interests and talents, plan events and get involved  with projects that  inspire them. Some examples are:

  • Going to help in Lourdes
  • Helping with local homeless projects
  • Supporting other parishioners, for example children and old people


We have a youth Mass every month, usually the last Sunday at 5 o’clock mass. There are music practises prior to each Mass.

A youth drama group also meets once a month.

Check out the events for next year.
