Congratulations Tessa and Tishan!
We would like to congratulate two members of our Oblate Youth Australia community who have recently been recognised for their efforts in their local communities!
Tessa Jenkins (St. Kieran’s, Moe) was awarded the Latrobe City Young Citizen of the Year for 2019 on Australia Day, for her work as one of the Youth Governance Committee members! Below is a photo of Tessa receiving her award along with two of her fellow Youth Governance Committee members.
Additionally, one of our National Co-ordinators, Tishan Lokuge (St. John Vianney’s, Springvale North; Mazenod College, VIC) received the Archdiocese of Melbourne Youth Ministry Award for Community Life 2019 at the recent Inaugural Youth Gala Dinner, for his work at bridging the gap between parish, as co-ordinator of the youth group at St. John Vianney’s (SJV Youth), and school, with his work as a youth minister at Mazenod College, VIC. Congratulations Tish!
