This week we facilitated a Game Changers Launch Retreat Day at the Marist Centre for all young men in Year 10 interested in joining the Game Changers Youth Ministry program in 2020. Game Changers provides the same opportunities that Remar has done here at Marcellin for over 25 years, and that Remar will continue to provide for our Year 11 and 12 Rowers in 2020 and 2021: invaluable, life-changing opportunities to grow in Christian leadership, communication skills, a sense of belonging and understanding of our responsibilities to reach out to the marginalised.
Game Changers involves regular Group Meetings intended to develop significant, supportive relationships that enhance participants’ capacity to realise their potential and practice Christian Leadership. Participants also have the opportunity to participate in retreats and reflection days, Christian service and, in Year 11, a solidarity immersion. In 2020, this updated version of Remar will be available to our young men of Year 10. It was wonderful to see just under 30 boys attend the Launch Retreat Day and we look forward to further exploring what Game Changers could be for them.
Should you have any questions regarding Game Changers or Remar, please contact either myself or one of our Game Changers Mentors, Emily Andrews, Ronan Long or Lachlan Scott, or our Remar Caravel Helms, Mario Frazzetto and Natalie Ciardulli. The future of youth ministry is bright at Marcellin and I look forward to continuing to journey with the young men who take up the opportunity to challenge themselves by stepping out of their comfort zones and becoming who they are truly called to be.
