Diocese of Westminster Youth Ministry

Made for Greatness

Faith in Jesus Christ breathes new life into our being. Like a gentle breeze, greeted by the morning sun, rooting our lives in Him is refreshing and gives us hope for the future. Life is seen with new eyes, illuminated by the light of God’s eternal love for us.

Through Christ, we see that life is more than merely a succession of events, but rather it is the pursuit of the true, the good and the beautiful. He challenges us to break free of our sins and the empty promises of the world, and to achieve greatness.

In this mission to greatness, God calls each of us to take up our responsibilities and support each other in the relentless pursuit of holiness, so that, one day, we may join him and live forever in Paradise.

Our Mission

Helping young people pursue the true, the good and the beautiful found in Christ, because each of us is made for greatness.

Our Vision
