Vision for Youth

An Australian Vision for Catholic Ministry

Anointed and Sent provides a vision for ministry with young people aged 12-30 in the Catholic Church in Australia. It calls the entire Church to accompany them as maturing disciples through their school and post-school years into young adulthood, and to help them find their place in the Church and the world. It calls young people, to be more involved in their faith community and to grow in understanding and expressing who they are as the Church of today and tomorrow.

Comprehensive Youth Ministry

Anointed and Sent sets three goals for Catholic youth ministry:

  • To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person
  • To draw young people into responsible participation in the life and mission of the Catholic community
  • To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in today’s world

These goals are advanced in eight focus areas:

  • Prayer and Worship
  • Evangelisation
  • Catechesis
  • Pastoral Care
  • Community Life
  • Justice and Service
  • Leadership Development
  • Advocacy
