Faith in Action Teams
FIAT teachers support the work of youth evangelisation.
As a legacy initiative of the Year of Youth in 2018, Catholic Youth Parramatta in collaboration with Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta have established formation teams in each of the secondary schools. FIAT teachers are dynamic, faith filled individuals, active within the life of the Church, who have the capacity to foster the personal and spiritual growth of young people, engaging them in the life and mission of the Catholic faith community. FIAT teachers support the work of youth evangelisation in their school and are an encouraging example of faith witness for students and fellow staff members.
FIAT teachers support local, diocesan and international initiatives for the ongoing formation of youth. This includes:
Catholic Youth Parramatta – Palm Sunday, Good Friday Night Walk, LIFTED Live events
National – ACYF17, Australian Catholic Youth Ministry Convention 2018
International – WYD19
FIAT teachers connect with local Parish and Youth Group leaders and invite them into a collaborative approach and seek to guide students in the development of local mission initiatives. Members of these collaborative and dynamic teams involve, but aren’t limited to, passionate young teachers and, in addition, local parish youth group leaders who feel called to accompany, and animate the formation of school students during this exciting chapter in our Australian Church.
