Stronger - an Introduction

stronger group 350pxOur Story
In 2008 the late Bishop Joe Grech wanted to continue the World Youth Day journey of bringing young people in the Diocese of Sandhurst to a fuller understanding of their faith, an engagement with the Church, and a living discipleship of Jesus.

Stronger began out of this desire to walk with young people as they encounter Jesus Christ and the Church, and strives to encourage them to become Stronger and empowered to live as His disciples who impact the world.

The first Stronger event was a weekend retreat held in 2008 with the late Bishop of Sandhurst, Joe Grech and Fr Rob Galea with 8 people attending.

Since then Stronger has continued to grow as a fun and faith-filled program where young people come together and celebrate their faith in Jesus Christ with one another and has impacted the lives of thousands of young people from the Sandhurst Diocese and beyond.

The Stronger program is made up of the following elements,The Stronger Retreat, Stronger Rallies, D Groups
