Open New Horizons for Spreading Joy: Young People, Faith and Vocational Discernment
The Australian Bishops have identified the liturgical year of 2018, beginning on the first Sunday of Advent (3rd December 2017), as a national Year of Youth. The Year of Youth will begin with the third Australian Catholic Youth Festival (ACYF) which will be hosted by the Archdiocese of Sydney (7th-9th December 2017).
The Year of Youth highlights the importance and life-giving presence of young people in the Church and society. It calls for dialogue and active engagement focused on the reconnection and renewal of a new generation of young people in the life of the Church.
The DCMYP will be working with a number of Diocesan organisations to develop a range of opportunities to celebrate the Year of Youth.
