Our youth mass at OLOC has a great energy and vibrance around it. All ministries are carried out by the youth. For example musicians, special ministers, offetory, collections, environment, welcome, readers and even the coffee makers and servers after mass! There are many more ministries and we are always looking for volunteers to participate actively during the mass.

The homily is always geared towards young people however it's not exclusive, anyone and everyone is welcome to this mass...but there is an extra special welcome for the youth.

The music played is known as 'Contemporary Christian Music' this is more in line with what people listen to today in terms of the style of music. In our band at the moment we have: guitar and bass player, keyboardist and drummer, a flutist, viola player and clarinet player as well as a few singers. Check out the link OLOC Music this will take you to Keith's MySpace (Music Minister for OLOC) and let you listen to some of his own Christian tracks. We also have a link to The David Crowder Band Website which is a great Christian band.

Even though this is a vibrant, and high energy mass it is still extremely reverant and prayerful and this is one of the most beautiful things to see at this mass, so come along and see what it's like.

After Mass on the Sunday there is a chance for you to mingle and chill out downstairs in the hall with everyone at our Coffee After Mass.

We have lovely freshly made coffee and tea, as well as delicious biscuits and fantastic conversation.

Sometimes it's a bit manic before mass so it's not always easy to chat to you all, so this gives us the best opportunity to meet new people and allow you to find out in more detail what's happening at OLOC and find out how you can get involved.

Don't be shy come and meet the rest of us at OLOC!

The Liturgy Group meets every Wednesday in OLOC from 7.30pm-8.15pm.

Everyone is welcome to this and there is no pressure to be there every week if your busy life doesn't allow you to do so. The reason for the liturgy group is to plan the liturgy for the following Sunday mass at OLOC. We read, reflect and discuss the Sunday Gospel and try to find what we think young people hear/need to hear from it and try and find a way to get young people to listen to what Jesus is trying to tell us. We are trying to keep it vibrant, fresh and alive so that young people are able to relate it to their own life's.

We use the Lectio Divina Style at the liturgy group which means we read through the gospel very slowly three times and have a reflection time between each reading of it and then we discuss what we think the gospel is about and what it's saying to young people. This is a very prayerful and reflective way to read the Gospel and we find it to be very fruitful.

'XPO' is short for Exposition. The evening consists of Contemporary Christian Music, a teaching which will be covered primarily by a young person or priest, we then have Adoration.

Afterwards there is refreshments and a chance to chat and chill out with other young people and ask any questions you have regarding your faith or the ministry project at OLOC.
