Movers & Shakers is a week-long Christian Leadership training program for young people aged 16-19.
It is organised and sponsored by the Queensland Catholic Diocesan Youth Coordinators.
Movers and Shakers has been running for 20 years and in that time it has developed into a key strategy in the development of young leaders within the Catholic Church in Queensland and beyond. It plays an important role in youth ministry training as it addresses the Christian leadership training needs of many parishes and schools. Over a thousand young people have come through the program developing leadership skills and building confidence to use back in their parishes, schools and communities.
The Parish has a policy to support young people who wish to take part.
Please see the Movers and Shakers site for details of the week:

St John's College and St Joseph's Youth group Nambour headed off to Summer camp on Thursday for four huge days at Mt Tamborine. They are kicking of the year on a massive high by listening to inspiring speakers, playing huge outdoor games, having loads of time making new friend and heaps of time to connect with Jesus, and discover more about their faith and explore what it means. If you want to find your place in God's love talk to Tracey our school Campus Minister. Our youth group meets one a month and more events planned for the year.

Would you like to travel overseas to see the life-changing work of the Church first hand?
In 2015, you are invited to join Catholic Mission’s Brisbane Director, David McGovern on an immersion trip to India. Taking place in the first part of the year, the 10 day journey will expose you to the missionary work of the Church and the lives being changed. It will show, as the first reading from Isaiah reminds us this weekend, that “the word that goes from [God’s] mouth does not return empty” and that His will is indeed being carried out, with the generosity of our donors and the faithfulness of missionary nuns, brothers and priests. For details, such as exact dates, a full itinerary and costs, please contact the Brisbane office of Catholic Mission, during office hours, on (07) 3336 9239.Full Story

Lord, purge our eyes to see
Within the seed a tree,
Within the glowing egg a bird,
Within the shroud a butterfly.
- Christina Rosetti (19th Century poet)
May you and your family be blessed this Christmas Season.
