This site is supported by MAYO (Mission Action Youth Organisation) group at Mazenod College, Victoria. It provides the opportunity for young Catholics to live out their faith together. Young Catholics are invited to join the site and get involved in the various projects. MAYO also provides the opportunity for other groups to use the site and so to work together to "leave nothing undared for the Kingdom of God" (St. Eugene). Part of this site is for the various MAYO core groups. Local youth groups around Mazenod are listed to encourage students to participate in their own youth parish youth groups. The projects are for anyone to join and get invovled in or even start new appropriate projects. The help section below is fairly comprehensive and should be able to answer most questions you have. This site is still developing so if you think it could be better than get invovled and help us improve it!

What is MAYO?

MAYO (Mission Action Youth Organisation) is an Oblate initiative at Mazenod College Mulgrave. It has evolved out of students who were involved in a year 9 Extension RE program. It seeks to primarily allow students to come to life-long personal relationship with Christ within the Oblate Charism, be formed through catechesis, apostolate, friendship and prayer to discern their personal vocation in life and then live it out, whatever it may be.

MAYO is named after Rev. Prof. Juan Antonio Perez Mayo OMI who died a martyr in Spain in 1932. He was a professor at 26, and was martyred at 29 years old. His process for sainthood is current. MAYO is also an acronym for Mission Action Youth Organization. This is a similar title to the Mission Action Day run at Mazenod College each year to raise funds for the missions. MAYO also seeks to take its inspiration from the youth organization begun by St. Eugene himself, the Sodality of Christian Youth. MAYO seeks to fulfil St. Eugene's wish of forming saints, ie, "make them human, make them Christian, make them saints". It is hoped that through the program students will become the future leaders within the Church to serve Christ as He calls them. It is a place for that call to be heard and responded to, and thus to "leave nothing undared for the kingdom of God."
