Stronger Youth

Stronger Youth began in 2008. It was born out of a desire of the late Bishop Joe Grech and Fr Rob Galea for young people to encounter Jesus Christ in a personal way.

It began with a weekend retreat attended by eight young people from around the Sandhurst Diocese and has grown with each passing year.

It became apparent that more needed to be done to sustain and deepen the faith of young people.

We began regular youth rallies in different parishes across the diocese. Each rally, which includes games, engaging faith-talks, praise and worship, adoration and fellowship, now attracts up to 350 young people every three months.

Stronger has grown over the past eight years both in terms of outreach and leadership, equipping young people to live out and celebrate their Catholic faith.

In 2012 we invested our prayer and energy in developing parish-based D-Groups (Discipleship Groups), where young people meet and develop their faith and sense of community. School outreaches and leadership development are also at the heart of Stronger Youth.

Over the past eight years Stronger has impacted the lives of thousands of young people with the invitation to become disciples of Jesus, through engaging in the life of the Church.
