July has been a busy month for the YCW!
Parramatta YCW held their “Worth More Than Gold” leadership training program, inspiring young leaders to take action in their local groups by using the See, Judge, Act method. The weekend was a fantastic success; forging new friendships, forming new groups, and inspiring all to live out their faith through Action! For more info on Parramatta YCW, or if you wish to become involved, please contact Elizabeth McFarlane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
National President Bridget Flood will be spending time in Armidale diocese to continue building the YCW movement there and to meet with members and address work life balance. The Armidale YCW is doing really well, and we hope to expand our movement there and inspire the formation of new groups.
Adelaide YCW is going strong in the Salisbury Parish, and is excited to be starting a new group in Elizabeth’s Parish as well as a book club! For more information on the Adelaide YCW, please contact Jennifer Robinson at email@example.com.
Perth YCW is continuing with building the base of their diocese with three groups meeting now in Subiacco, Baldivas, and Highgate.

Melbourne YCW also has a lot to look forward to with their Asylum Seeker & Refugee Dinner and Discussion Nights, commencing next Wednesday (30th). These nights will aim to educate and empower young people to serve and represent asylum seekers and refugees through friendly discussion, the exploration of the politics surrounding the issue of asylum seekers/refugees, and the introduction of guest speakers who will help give insight into the experiences of a refugee and how we can make a positive impact on those seeking asylum.
