We met each week on Fridays at 7pm – 8.30pm where we chatted, played games together and also undertook the Youth Alpha Programme. Aside from our weekly meetings we also engaged in a wide variety of parish activities such as the Mobile Crib at Christmas, we helped to deliver a Confirmation Programme to Sixth Class pupils in January, we organised an event at Easter, went on a pilgrim walk to Fenit on Feast of St. Brendan in May, and finally over the Summer trained as Youth Ambassadors offering guided tours of the 2 St. John’s Churches here in Tralee. We are also given opportunities to help with any of the Children’s ministry groups in our parish.
