EMPOWERED Ministry – We are the Parish Youth Ministry of St. Joseph’s Cathedral Parish, Kuching. We offer youths – which includes upper elementary school, high-school, college-university students and young working adults – an avenue to learn about our Catholic faith, while journeying together with other youths of various ages and backgrounds. We worship, pray, praise, encourage, minister, learn, study, love and serve together.
WE GATHER TO PRAISE GOD AND LISTEN TO HIM.
Our main focus is to grow in our personal relationships with GOD through Christ Jesus, as led by the Holy Spirit; while sharing the Good News of GOD’s Love and Hope with other young people in our community.
TOGETHER WE BUILD A GENERATION.
This Ministry aims to build a generation of young Catholics who are excited about GOD, in Love with Jesus and empowered by the Holy Spirit, to minister to many other youths and be fully participative in the life, mission and work of the Church.
The essence of our calling is summed up in a single word: Love.
WE NURTURE EACH OTHER IN FAITH.
We exists to glorify GOD. We gather youths of our Church for a time of fellowship and ministering to each other through Christ. We invite all to enter into GOD’s presence through corporate worship, praise and prayers that will eventually equip them to find, pursue and fulfill their GOD-given purpose.
WE PURSUE TO LIVE IN THE RICHNESS OF GOD'S LOVE.
We want to realize the Love of GOD through His Son, Jesus Christ and impart a better understanding of the role of Jesus in our lives. Focusing on what Jesus can do in our lives rather than what we can do for Him, we seek to plant the love for the Word of GOD in this new generation of Catholics and assist young people to experience and understand the richness of Christian life within the context of the Catholic faith.
