We facilitate the formation of young people in our parish, so that they may develop a profound relationship with Christ and his Church.
At our core, we are the umbrella body for the youth and young adult communities in this parish. During our sessions, we pray, fellowship, and study the faith together, according to the principle:
These remained faithful to the teachings of the apostles, to the brotherhood, and to the breaking of bread and to the prayers.
— Acts 2:42
The Youth Office also plans and carries out Confirmation retreats and ad-hoc programmes for young people. In addition, we have an Instagram team in charge of the parish’s Instagram account @stberns.sg. These outreach efforts involve both community members and other young collaborators.
