We would like to encourage our Youth Network to attend the Australian Catholic Youth Festival, which will be held in Adelaide from the 3rd – 5th of December 2015.
The Festival is run by the Australian Catholic Bishops’ Conference to “Provide young people with an opportunity to deepen their relationship with Jesus, be empowered to be disciples in the world today and encounter and celebrate the vitality of the Church in Australia.” Young people from Year 9 up to those of 25 years of age are invited to participate in this event.
This year the Festival has taken a scriptural verse as its theme – “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” Matthew 5:8. This theme is provided by Pope Francis as the theme for World Youth Day in 2015, in preparation for the pilgrimage to Krakow in 2016.
