The Diocesan Youth Ministry Team (YMT) was set up at the request of Bishop Ambrose Griffiths back in 1995. The main purpose is to communicate the Gospel using various creative means to the young. They gather young people from all over the world to live a community lifestyle for a 10-month volunteer programme, which includes training in various ways of communicating the Gospel.
Within our school we have developed close links with YMT working with our children. With the use of drama, mime, music and multimedia they have presented the Gospel in a lively and effective way. In addition to this children have been involved in retreat which supports young people to find their place in “belonging” and “Church”.
