SCENE makes colourful noise on Sydney streets

The Franciscan friars of Catholic Underground


Week-long celebrations of the Sydney Congress for Embracing the New Evangelisation, SCENE, took place in the city's Martin Place last week, with a faith-inspired rock music show, talks, a family day and many other events.

Things kicked-off with "Catholic Underground" with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, and the launch of Cradio, Catholic radio online, said a report in The Catholic Weekly.

"Blending traditional with contemporary prayer and music the evening then moved into full swing with a superb performance of uniquely Catholic faith-inspired rock music by the friars and Set Apart music ministry from Wollongong," said Elizabeth Peoples of the CREDO office of the Sydney archdiocese.

"Attendance at SCENE has been terrific, with venues comfortably full at Catholic Underground, SCENE's family day and the evening pub talks."

A series of pub talks at the St James Hotel, Star Bar and Sanctuary Hotel in the city attracted large audiences, including Lucy O'Connell's presentation ‘Re fashioning Womanhood', and Br Max Scul ley's ‘Is Yoga, Tai Chi and Reiki good for the soul?'.

"Feedback from the pub talks has been great," Elizabeth said. "You could hear a pin drop when she gave her testimony. Most people seemed quite gobsmacked."
