From the earliest days of our community at Camparmò, Fr. Ricardo placed emphasis on ministry and service to children, young people and families. As a community at the service of the New Evangelisation, empowering children and young people to encounter Jesus in a new and fresh way brings life and joy to the community. Our ministry aims to enable them to receive the Lord’s promises, discover His plans, and embrace them with confidence.
We currently lead youth ministry groups of different age groups in the Mid-Antrim and Glens area, as well as with young people in East Belfast. Young people able to travel to us at the Braid or our ’base‘ in Ballyhackamore are welcome to join us as we build community, exploring faith through fun and friendship. This year we will be working with a group of young people in Cork, a legacy of our recent pilgrimage in Spain and Portugal, and we support the youth ministry our brothers and sisters in Koinonia in Great Britain.
As well as this ongoing ministry, our youth team deliver shorter projects in collaboration with parishes. This has included Youth Alpha, as well as Lenten programmes modelled on the GIFT programme. We have designed a confirmation retreat around the personality of Joshua, which we’ve delivered across the island of Ireland.
Our youth ministry features heavily on our Instagram, so feel free to have a look there, either via our homepage here or by adding us @koinoniaireland.
If you’d like more info, or want to get involved, ask a parent to contact Francis, our Youth Ministry Lead .
We’re getting there, but it will take some time. Please enjoy what we have created so far, and reach out to us if you want more information or join in any of our activities.
