Welcome to the information page for the
Catholic Youth Ministry of the Parishes of Poole.
We all want our young people to find the fullness of Jesus in the Catholic Church.
Following an interview process involving three great candidates, we are delighted to announce that we have appointed Will Hince as youth worker for Poole. He will be known to many locally as he grew up here in St Mary’s parish where he and his wife Maria and four children are parishioners. He has wide-ranging experience in youth work in different parts of the country including:
Co-ordinating youth ministry across Portsmouth Diocese.
Co-ordinating youth ministry across the Bournemouth and Avon Stour Pastoral Areas.
Pioneering outdoor retreats for young people, for which Bishop Mark is patron.
Working on full-time evangelisation teams running retreats, parish missions, and doing outreach in schools.
Working in a Catholic retreat centre.
Working as a school lay chaplain.
He is a man of vision and deep faith. I’m sure parishioners in all our parishes will have chance to meet him at Saturday/Sunday mass in due course. Please pray for him as he takes up his post in October.
