Marist Youth FestivalMarist Youth Festival 2017: Friday 30 June – Monday 3 July
MYF17 is a vibrant four-day celebration of Catholic faith, expressed through the Marist charism, where young people aged 18-25 are inspired to deepen their relationship with God and strengthen their desire to serve as disciples of Christ and agents of change in today’s world.

Through creative workshops and inspiring keynote presentations, together with dynamic prayer and worship experiences, MYF17 invites you to delve deeper into contemporary issues of faith and justice and learn what it means to be Marists for today; young men and women who are grounded in prayer and action with a love for God, humanity and all creation.

MYF17 is a project of Marist Youth Ministry Australia, conducted on behalf of the Marist Association of St Marcellin Champagnat. Four Year 11 students; Anika Powers, Chris Heelan, Beth Redwood and Joseph Kavenagh will be attending to represent Newman College and will be accompanied by Mrs Rebecca Bramanto, Mr Daniel Lynch, Michael Heelan and Molly Rafter (both Newman College Class of 2016).

IMG 7338Remar Blue – ShopFront Chefs: Monday 19 June
Last Monday, the Remar Blue Caravel made up of 35 Year 11 students led by their helms, worked to donate food and later cook close to 300 meals for Perth’s needy. ShopFront Chefs is an organisation with a close association to the College that provides hot meals for Perth’s homeless community, as well as the opportunity for compassionate people to reach out and actively assist those less fortunate. The few hours we spent cooking were pervaded with an aura of gratitude, excitement and humility, as we were able to see our faith in action in our own community and engage with our charism in a meaningful way. The cooking itself was a challenge that we had never been presented with before, however it offered us a rewarding outcome, as we learnt a new skill and were able to live our charism by helping those in the wider community. It was a fantastic experience and one we hope to embark on again in the future.
