Year 8 Catch the Wave Retreat

Wednesday, October 16, 2019 (All day)

The Catholic Schools Youth Ministry Australia (CSYMA) program is continuing at Merici College as part of Archbishop Christopher’s plan for the new evangelisation of youth in our archdiocese.

The first phase of this program includes a retreat experience called Catch the Wave. This one-day program provides an opportunity for students to hear the youth ministry message and aims to meet youth where they are at. Students are encouraged to “paddle out” and explore their faith in an engaging and fun day full of great activities.

Our Year 8 students will be taking part in the retreat on Wednesday 16 October. Once the girls have participated in the retreat we will be asking for volunteers to continue with the CSYMA program in 2020 as part of a specific Religious Education class which will complete the Introduction to Youth Ministries course during Religious Education class time.

The following link is to the video produced by CSYMA as a teacher introduction to the unit . Should you have any questions, please contact either Amy Connellan - 62434157 ( or Andrew Blakey 62434156 (
