Eat, pray, live!

It's not unusual to hear people express concern about the death of young people in churches and church communities. However the parish communities of the Maitland region are proud to host a ground-breaking initiative called ACTiv8.

Youth Team leader Anne Maher says the latest deveopment represents a model that she hopes and belives might one day spread throughout her diocese and even farther afield.

"As a leader with a background in the social sciences, I was finding it difficult to cope with the work generated in youth ministry, even with the extraordinary support of several devoted volunteers. Yet I wanted to expand the ministry, so I asked for assistance from the regional community."

The latest dimension of the ACTiv8 model involves three first year university students living in community, sharing a flat at the Bishop's House Maitland.
