 - Parish Youth Group -

 - Welcome to St. Patrick's Youth Group -  

Dear Friends,

Last September we established a new youth group in this parish.

I would to begin by thanking all those parents who supported this group by encouraging their children to attend.  I would also like to express my sincere thanks to the wonderful youth leaders who worked tirelessly organising and sharing their time with the children.

Youth groups are a very important ministry within the Church and especially in our parishes.  It is a wonderful opportunity for young people of the parish and town to come together to share their faith in a safe, happy and enjoyable environment.

We now have nine leaders who will work with myself in leading and managing this group.  All leaders have been PVG checked approved by the Archdiocese.

Our plan is to restart on Thursday 31st August and meet almost every Thursday in the Parish Hall during the school year. 
The evening will be starting at

  • 6.30pm and conclude at 8pm

​During our time together we will have a 

  • Spiritual Talk

  • Group Activities

  • Tuck Shop

  • Activities - (Pool, Football, Hockey, Table Football, Board Games, Electronic Games, Crafts etc) to suit all individuals.

We conclude the evening with Night Prayer.  We will also have a Film Night every so often.  Every four to six weeks we will have an outing (view calendar).

The Youth Group is open to all children from the parish and beyond irrespective of their faith. The age range is from

  • Primary 5 to Second Year at High School

The entry cost per week will be

  • £1.50

This charge will be used to subsidise the transport for the outings.

At present the CO-OP has chosen our Youth Group as one of their named charities until October this year.  Can i ask that you try and support your local CO-OP shop and Funeral Directors.  It is our intention in the near future to apply to other agencies for grants and funding.  We also plan to have other fund raising activities during the next ten months, your support will be much appreciated.  We do ask all our Youth to support this group.  it's thanks to the participation of the parish Youth that this group is possible and so we would ask parents to encourage their children to come along.  View the yearly calendar for dates when group meets and outings that are planned.  


Can i draw your intention to a Parents Meeting we are holding on 

  • Thursday 21st September at 7.30 pm in the Parish Hall

At this meeting we will explain some of our plans for the future, especially our planned Summer Weekend Trip.  I hope you can come along.
