It is our pleasure to inform you that Damian Khoury and Sebastian Duhau have been appointed to substantive Youth Ministry positions within the Lasallian Mission Services' team, specifically the Young Lasallians Team, commencing in January 2018.
Damian will join Philippe Dulawan as one of our two Youth Ministry Coordinators, working to enhance the continuing development of our programs, with a responsibility for mentoring the Youth Ministers themselves, as well as liaising closely with their school-based supervisors.
Sebastian has been appointed to the position of Retreats and Programs Coordinator, with particular responsibility for assisting in the continued growth and development of the expanded program of Retreats and Reflection Days.
Sebastian will ensure smooth management of the increasing take-up of the Young Lasallians Team's services in this area. Damian (Southern Cross Catholic College, Scarborough) and Sebastian (De La Salle College, Ashfield) have been highly regarded as Youth Ministers in their current assignments, and while they will be missed at their respective schools, we are very pleased that their skills, personal and professional, will now more broadly impact across the District.
At this time, we also acknowledge the spirited commitment of Jordan Bottalico in his role as Assistant Youth Ministry Coordinator within the Young Lasallian team, as well as his previous work as Youth Minister at DLS, Ashfield.
Jordan's fidelity to all matters Lasallian, coupled with his energy, enthusiasm and sense of humour, have been hallmarks of his work- he has made a genuine difference in the lives of those he has touched. We wish Jordan well as he returns to fulltime study towards an M.Ed.
We also acknowledge the skilful work of Julie Alibrandi (LMC Operations Manager) and Philippe (Senior Youth Ministry Coordinator) who joined the selection panel for the full day of interviews for the above positions.
