The Parish Youth Ministry focuses on the growth of faith of young people in the parish. In the other word, it takes up the mission of “New Evangelization” to young Catholics. Therefore, the role of Deanery-Parish Group is to address the needs for catechesis, spirituality formation and community life of young people, as well as the challenges in youth ministry affairs in parish and deanery levels.
