iSeek – Teens

iSeechristpantocrator-sinaik is our vibrant youth group at St Charbel’s Parish, offering young people an opportunity to build a personal and relationship with Jesus. iSeek is also an opportunity to meet, share, and celebrate our Catholic faith with other young people.

The name of the group stems from God’s command to the Prophet Amos “Seek me and Live” (Amos 5:4) which is essentially a summary of the entire Christian faith.

There are a number of ways for young people to get involved, namely iSeek nights, Eucharistic Adoration Prayer nights and social activities.

iSeek also facilitates a number of social activities that help to bring young people together in an atmosphere of joy and solidarity. These include picnics, movies days, sports days, retreats, pilgrimages, the annual Walk with Christ Corpus Christi Process, Visiting of the Seven Churches on Holy Thursday evening, bowling, trivia nights, laser tags, karaoke and other outings.

The biggest event in the iSeek calendar is our annual January camp for three days and two nights focusing on a central spiritual theme. The camp has a mixture of social and spiritual events that allow young people to encounter Christ in a deeper way.

Where the Feeble Senses Fail

The Eucharist is at the heart of iSeek and St Charbel’s youth ministry. iSeek facilitates opportunities to come closer to Jesus in the Eucharist, the source and summit of our faith. This includes Eucharistic Adoration, where the faithful can honour the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. In a deeper sense, it involves a contemplation of the Mystery and Banquet of Love.

We facilitate a number of opportunities for Eucharistic Adoration throughout the year, stay tuned for announcements.
