On the 21st of August, Deacon Anthony from Catholic Mission came to Cardijn for ‘a day with Catholic Mission’. Catholic Mission is the Australian agency of the international Pontifical Mission Society. Locally and globally they answer the call to love God and love your neighbour. YCS and Catholic Mission in Adelaide are working together to promote each other’s movements and spread the good news of God.
‘a day with Catholic Mission’s’ purpose was to build the participants knowledge and connection with YCS and Catholic Mission and has built upon the student’s leadership skills such as public speaking and confidence. These skills are very important to the students as they will use these when speaking to the local Adelaide churches and primary schools about Catholic Mission and YCS. This is a great opportunity and will greatly benefit them in the long run.
In the formation through action and reflection session, our group planted a decorated a peace lily plant that represents what we can achieve when working together. (show in photo)
