The San Pedro Roman Catholic Church has organized a youth group on Ambergris Caye, Belize in order to provide island youth an outlet for them not to only learn more about the church, but also become active members of the community, be social and more importantly have fun.
The group has started to meet on Fridays at 6p.m. for an hour at the Catholic Church’s Parish Hall where they participate in activities that include chats about topics related to the Church, arts & craft, mentorship chats, among other fun activities.
The youth group was organized by Father Scott who envisions the island youth becoming more involved with the Catholic Church and the community and also providing them with positive activities that will keep them busy and away from negative influences. These activities will include community service projects, fundraiser and even participation in retreats organized by the church around the country.
The Youth Group is broken down in to two sub-groups that include pre-teens ages 11 to 13 and Teens from 14 and older. The pre-teen group engages in separate chats from the teens group that address more ‘grown up’ topics but are all involved in the same activities the entire group organizes.
