Youth and Young Adult Ministry

The Ballarat Diocese supports youth and young adults in their journey of Christian faith.



We are excited to share with you ‘Youth PATHWAYS’.

This booklet, produced by the Catholic Diocese of Ballarat, and distributed to school leavers around the Diocese, outlines opportunities to assist Young Adults on their faith journey.

It includes information about a variety of youth ministry and young adult
activities, as well as details on faith formation, social justice and outreach
