Sydney Catholic Youth is the Archbishop’s agency for youth and young adults within the Archdiocese of Sydney. Our mission is to walk with young people towards an ever deeper encounter with Christ, the Church and one another.

Since our launch in 2017, Sydney Catholic Youth has had a whirlwind of a two years. Alongside visiting parishes, youth groups and youth ministers, we’ve been blessed to be involved in supporting and running events; from our annual Y-Factor camp, to events such as CityFest and EastFest.

God has been generous to us – through each encounter we have had with a young person and through each event we have hosted, God has met us in all things. He has reminded us continuously of His promise to us that all things work together for good. And while our mission to love and serve young people keeps us persevering, we await in hope for the greater things to come for the young people of the Archdiocese of Sydney. We ask that you keep Sydney Catholic Youth, our Archdiocesan priests and clergy, Youth Ministers and all young people in your prayers – and join us in praying for a new generation of young people moved by the love of God and want to make Him known.
