MYAM is a ministry of the Marist Brothers District of the Pacific. Traditionally Marist Brothers have worked among young people in education, but in recent years they have moved into other areas of ministry with young people.

MYAM was born out of the concern that Marist Brothers can so easily lose touch with young people after they leave college. MYAM's aim is to make and maintain contact with young people, namely young adults from Marist schools and the wider community.

Br Kieran Fenn

After 6 years in the Philippines, Kieran returned to New Zealand and has been part of MYAM since 2003.  Aside from MYAM activities, Kieran works in Adult Education teaching scripture in New Zealand and abroad, namely in Fiji and the Philippines.  Outside of his scripture work which keeps him very busy, Kieran works with the Faith and Light group in Wellington.

Br Douglas Dawick

Before coming to Wellington to set up The Grove and MYAM, Doug spent most of his life as a Brother in Auckland and Fiji working in education.  Doug keeps himself busy with lots of work that he does for the Marist Brothers Province of New Zealand.  When he is in Wellington, he is involved in various activities with youth and young adults such as REMAR - a Marist programme that started in South America - with students from Sacred Heart and St Bernard's in Lower Hutt.
