Youth Group

Our youth and young adults ministry encourages them to become involved and active members in the wider community. Fun, faith, and social justice are at the heart of our programming.

They meet on Sunday mornings for faith formation, and during the week meet for various activities ranging from scavenger hunts and bowling, to preparing food and serving at Out of the Cold dinners in the Etobicoke area, and other outreach activities such as the Dorothy Ley Hospice Bed Race.

To learn more about getting involved, contact our youth leader at youth@stgeorgesonthehill.ca

Tutoring

St. George’s runs a tutoring program called the Etobicoke Learning Cooperative. Whether you need help with a school subject, or want to offer help to others, you are always welcome to participate.

Movies in the Moment - "The Hate U Give"

Join the Youth Group for Movies in the Moment: "The Hate U Give" - A Screening and a Discussion.

We know that the past few weeks have been difficult ones for many and things that our youth and young children are seeing in the world around us right now are difficult to explain.

Collectively the Youth Group has come to the conclusion (or perhaps more accurately a beginning) that we need to listen, learn and lend our voices to those who are oppressed and most importantly we need to talk about what we're seeing with the understanding that no question is too uncomfortable or unwarranted to interrogate and talk about.

We are continuing this process with a virtual screening of the Film "The Hate U Give" which has been made available for free through YouTube which will follow by a discussion about the film, what we've seen and where we see it in the world around us.

At 5:00pm we'll do a quick introduction to the film. Youth and Families are encouraged to watch the film on their own time. At 7:30pm we'll be rejoining the conversation by Zoom to discuss the film, how it relates to Black Lives Matter and the movement in the world today. If you do not have the Zoom meeting information please contact James Noronha at james@stgeorgesonthehill.ca or at 647-297-2267,

How to Watch the Video The Movie "The Hate U Give" is available to watch on YouTube for Free (on a computer not mobile) using the link below.

IMPORTANT: When you click on that link it will say that the VIDEO IS UNAVAILABLE, scroll down till you see the Movie Poster and the Button "BUY OR RENT" clicking on the button will allow you to Rent the Movie for $0.00

Do I Have To Login at 5:00PM / Do I Have To Watch it Between 5-7:30pm Of Course Not! You can start watching whenever you'd like, some of you may have already watched this or read the book. We DO hope that you'll consider joining us at 7:30pm for the debrief.

If you can't make the discussion please consider watching the movie on your own time and letting us know what you think.
Is This Movie Appropriate For Everyone? The movie itself is rated as PG-13/G (depending on where you look). The content is likely best suited for those aged 13 and up. That said we'd encourage Parents and Families to review it and consider the content and being part of the discussion together.

Synopsis: "Based on the best-selling novel, The Hate U Give tells the story of Starr Carter, who lives in two worlds: the poor, black neighborhood where she resides and the mostly white prep school she attends. This uneasy balance is shattered when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood friend by a policeman. Facing pressures from all sides, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right."

We'd encourage and welcome families to watch this with us.

Any Questions? Want to Join the Discussion or want to know what else you can do... please don't hesitate to drop James an email or give us a call at the number above.
If you haven't already seen it I'd invite you all to watch Fr. Michelle's Sermon from the Past Sunday where she reflects on Corpus Christi and the call to action. Its worth a watch and a listen. I'll leave you with her words which I hope embody the spirit of what we are called to do.

"Black lives matter. Indigenous lives matter. Brown lives matter. LGBTQ2 lives matter. The marginalized, the homeless, the addicted and the oppressed - their lives matter. We are one as the body of Christ, we are connected to each other, not separate."

"We live in a world with systemic racism. And it can be hard to recognize the Body of Christ when it is on the ground, in a black body, under the knee of the law. If we take our faith seriously, we need not only to open our eyes, but to use our minds, our voices, our hands and our feet, united as one, to make a stand." - Fr. Michelle Childs-Ward
