WelCom May 2023
Maria John, YAFA Leader for St Mary’s College
YAFA – ‘Youth Allowed, Faith Aloud’ – had a successful first session for 2023 last month, hosted by St Mary’s College. Over 200 students attended.
YAFA is a gathering for students from the Catholic colleges around Wellington to meet, socialise, eat together, pray together, and become closer to their faith. The session focus ‘Pūaroha’ – support – included students presenting skits with this value in action. This was really evident when each school performed their school Haka with the support and encouragement of the other schools.
Everyone had a good laugh, talk and some kai, and we’re looking forward to the next session at St Catherine’s College, early Term 2.
