Youth Activities in Douglas
The 1st Cork Company of the Boys’ Brigade meets each Thursday evening in the Canon Packham Hall. This company is very active throughout the year and caters for both boys and girls. It has three sections including a Company Section catering for teenagers. The Captain is Mrs. Tanya Meikle. For further information please contact the clergy or the Parish Office.
In collaboration with the Methodist Church in Douglas, occasional ‘Just for Girls‘ events are held in the Ardfallen Centre in Douglas. These days have proved highly popular with many girls of primary school age in the parish. Jacqui Wilkinson is one of the leaders from this parish involved in these events. ‘Just for Girls’ is advertised through the parish primary schools and in our churches. Again contact any of the clergy for further information.
At present, due to the lack of local leaders, we do not have a regular youth group meeting in the parish. However some of our young parishioners are involved in diocesan and national youth events. Information on these can be found through the Cork Diocesan Youth Council (CDYC) section of the Diocesan Website. It is also envisaged that some joint youth events for parishes within our rural deanery will be held on an occasional basis.
