Australian Catholic Youth Festival (Issue 2 2016)
Written on the 26 February 2016
Last December a group of Sacred Heart College students joined thousands of youth from all over Australia to attend the second Australian Catholic Youth Festival. After the success of the first ACYF in Melbourne 2013 the Australian Bishops Council elected Adelaide to host 2015 to inspire and empower the youth of the Church. The festival theme was inspired by Pope Francis', "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God" in preparation for World Youth Day 2016. The days were full of fun and excitement as the young people enjoyed participating in a variety of music, plenaries, workshops, talks, games and more, that explored and celebrated the Catholic faith. It was an occasion that proved that the youth of the Catholic Church today is as alive and vibrant as ever.
