Home / Youth Ministry

Daramalan College is a participant in Catholic Schools Youth Ministry Australia (CYSMA).  The focus of CSYMA is evangelisation through peer-to-peer ministry.  As part of the College’s commitment to Youth Ministry, Daramalan Graduate, Bart Bunk joined the College in 2021 as a Youth Minister.   

Bart comes into the College one day a week, on Fridays, to work with staff and students.  He facilitates sessions on faith and formation topics during class visits, composes Friday morning prayers, works with Youth Ministry Team, runs a fortnightly youth group at lunch time and facilitates the Year 9 Catch the Wave retreat.  Additionally, he works with the AP Mission to prepare the Year 10 Youth Ministers to deliver the Year 7 Retreat Days.   

There are lots of opportunities for students in Years 10-12 to be involved in Youth Ministry at Daramalan College.  First, through electing to be a part of the Year 10 Youth Ministry class, this is an elective within Year 10 Religious Education.  Secondly, students can volunteer their time to be a part of the Youth Ministry Team.  This group assists Bart in planning and facilitating Youth Group gatherings, as well as components of liturgical celebrations.
