More than 350 bishops, priests and youth ministers gathered at Campbelltown last month for the Australian Catholic Youth Ministry Convention.
Participants heard from keynote speakers, celebrated Mass together and participated in a wide range of different workshops. A group from the Melbourne Archdiocese travelled together to participate and enjoy the conference, which is one of only a few of its kind that aims to supports Youth Ministry.
One of the first keynote speakers, Sr Hilda Scott OSB, reminded the assembled youth that “It’s God we’re on about!” and that “God is going to love you if you like it or not.”
Bishop Anthony Fisher OP challenged urged participants not to “let anyone look down on [them] because [they] are young, but set an example in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.'
