“What is needed today is a church which knows how to respond to the expectations of young people. Jesus wants to enter into dialogue with them and, through his body, which is the church, to propose the possibility of a choice, which will require a commitment of their lives. As Jesus with the disciples of Emmaus, so the church must become the traveling companion of young people...” (Pope John Paul II, World Youth Day 1995, Philippines)
The church must become the traveling companion of young people—and that is what we mean by youth ministry. If, indeed, “it takes an entire village to raise a child,” then it certainly takes an entire church to journey with young people as they grapple with the Good News and respond in discipleship.

The Youth Ministry is part of the Parish Youth Council (PYC) which serves to oversee and integrate the 3 language speaking Youth Ministries, namely, the English Speaking Youth Ministry, Chinese Speaking Youth Ministry and Tamil Speaking Youth Ministry. Each of these languages Ministries together with the PYC undertakes the responsibility to serve and cater to the needs of all the parish's youths.

There have been many activities organized by the ministry from little things such as arranging chairs and preparing performances for Father Henriot’s dinner to the animation of the living rosary and Palm Sunday masses every year.

Most importantly all 3 language have their very own monthly gathering, whereby they will have praise and worship, interesting topics such as (boy/girl relationship), and also a small fellowship. This gathering will be held monthly to cater to the respective youths of the different languages.  

From the month of July 2008, this ministry has started its zone youth ‘road show’ and together with our parish priests we have successfully visited 13 zones in Kajang. This helps to promote the youth ministry further, get a better understanding on the needs of the youths in Holy Family and help us to plan and organize activities in accordance to their needs. Furthermore, it creates a better bond with each and every youth in the respective zones.
In December 2008, the Youth Ministry organized a Christmas party for the indigenous children in Semenyih.

During this coming Lenten Season, we will be doing an immersion project where we immerse ourselves with those in need. Our target is to visit 3 different centres, namely the centre for Children with Learning disabilities, Old folks home and HIV inmates.

Our goals and Mission
Goal 1
Youth Ministry ... it’s about discipleship

The first goal of youth ministry is “to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today”

Goal 2
Youth Ministry ... it’s about connection
The second goal is “to draw young people to participate in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community”

Goal 3
Youth Ministry ... it’s about gifts and growth
The third goal of youth ministry is “to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person”

Youth Ministry ... it takes an entire Church

“This is what is needed: a Church for young people, which will know how to speak to their heart and enkindle, comfort, and inspire enthusiasm in it with the joy of the Gospel and the strength of the Eucharist; a Church which will know how to invite and welcome the person who seeks a purpose for which to commit his whole existence; a Church which is not afraid to require much, after having given much; which does not fear asking from young people the effort of a noble and authentic adventure, such as that of the following of the Gospel.”

(Pope John Paul II. 1995 World Day of Prayer for Vocations)

15 youths from the Holy Family Church together with 10 students from the Catholic Student Society (CSS) of University Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) had a fulfilling weekend in the Welcome Community Home, Batu Arang on the 21st of March 2009.

Welcome Community Home serves as a rehabilitation centre for drug dependents and also for HIV/AIDS sufferers. 5 cars left the church grounds at around 9 am and arrived at the Home at 11 a.m. Brother Tony Gomez, the head of the Archdiocesan Office for Human Development (AOHD) gave a short welcoming speech, followed by a tour around the Home. The youth’s paid close attention to what was being said and they gained a lot of information about the patients and their needs during the tour.

Then, it was time for Mass. One of the youths brought along his keyboard which made the Mass such a joyous celebration. Rev Fr Edward Soosay delivered a very meaningful sermon about the change of heart during this Lenten season which made a great impact on all the youths present.  

Lunch was then served at 1 p.m. This was the climax of the visit as the youths were able to mingle around and listen for themselves about the sufferings and struggle went through by the residents of this home. Some were even given the opportunity to feed the bed ridden patients. It was a great exposure to all the youths who were all this while living in a world of their own. The residents of this home were more than eager to share their life journey as this is what they have been ‘thirsting’ for all this while.

The youths then entertained the residents with a few songs in Bahasa Malaysia and English. It was an enjoyable session for the youths as well as the residents of the Welcome Community Home as smiles were seen on each faces.

Handmade bookmarks by the youth were then given as souvenirs to the residents. Each bookmark had encouraging words written on it. Although it was just a small gift, the residents were more than happy to have received them.

Then it was time to say goodbye. The youths went around and shook hands with everyone in the Home. Although it was a short visit, it certainly made a great impact on all the youths. They have come to realise that it is not materials or money that can satisfy a person’s need but the love and care poured out by a genuine heart.
