Our mission is informed by St Marcellin Champagnat’s Approach to Young People…

  • Young people are basically good.
  • Understand what makes young people act as they do.
  • Challenge others to take a positive view of young people.
  • Have a particular care for those least favoured by life.
  • The relationship between an adult and a young person is that between big brother/sister and little brother/sister.
  • Unfailing kindness and patience work with the young.
  • Be close to young people, challenging them with gentleness and respect.
  • Express your sense of humour.
  • Working with young people is a call of the Gospel.
  • Bringing up young people is both a civic and a spiritual activity.
