What a start to 2018 it has been! We hit the ground running in January with our biggest ever Chaplaincy Formation: The Light on the Hill.
The feedback assures us that our chaplains felt valued by the encouragement they received during the program for their unique roles in school communities.
Our Christian Values Education started the year very strongly, with a couple of major events. The first one, the annual Passing the Baton Conference, held at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church and sponsored by YouthCARE, was attended by many of our CVE volunteers.
I found it particularly inspiring given the long distances some our regional volunteers travelled to attend. Such commitment is why CVE continues to have a positive reputation in our communities.
In our first Connect of the year, we welcome the publication of a very special book and our Breakfast Clubs get some extra attention from the media.
I thank you all for your continued support and prayer and look forward to hearing and sharing more stories about the wonderful work YouthCARE is doing in WA school communities in the coming year.
