Sunday 8 Sept 2013 - Theme: Walking Alongside - Meaningful work for the young worker
The afternoon started with a game of crocodiles and ladders, with all ages participating in small groups. This was not an ordinary board game but designed for the Social Justice week. The crocodiles and ladders are labeled with the pitfalls, lucky breaks and positive actions that help a young person into employment.
The game was a great way to introduce a discussion of what it means to be a young worker and the difficulties faced in today's economic environment for young workers looking for work or starting out in their first jobs.
There was an open discussion on these issues and a sharing of ideas on how we, as individuals, Catholics and as a Catholic parish, can help both Catholic and non-Catholic youth in our community.
