The Youth Group was led by David Smith, a staff mmber of Xavier and a parishioner of Gawler parish, with the help from Mrs. Leonie Rex, a staff member of St. Bridget Catholic Primary School in Gawler and who also is an active member of the parish. Fr. Will Matthews SDB also supports David Smith in running activities and giving regular religious inputs to the teenagers.
Three more gatherings are scheduled for Term One: 21st February, 7th March and 21st March. All teenagers, or secondary school students, are invited to come along to Don Bosco Youth Group.
