Australian Catholic Youth Festival

19 JUNE 2017 Back to News

The ACYF is a national gathering of Catholic young people established by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference. It exists to provide young people with opportunities 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.

The ACYF will take place at Sydney Showgrounds in Homebush from Thursday 7th to Saturday 9th December 2017. Students attending the ACYF will miss two school days.

St Joseph’s Catholic College is committed to a large-scale engagement of our students with the ACYF. We believe it to be a vital opportunity to encourage our students in their faith and involvement in the life of the church.

At St Joseph’s we are inviting all students from Years 9, 10, 11 to attend the festival. The students will be prepared before the festival, supervised by our staff during the festival and given opportunities after the festival for reflective evaluation.

Transport: We intend use bus transport. The school will cover the cost of bus transport. Exact details will be available once we have a clear idea of total numbers travelling. Departure time will be around 7 am. The bus will return to the school around 10.30 pm.

Dress: Students will be required to wear appropriate casual clothes for a church event.

Cost:  3 Day Registration $250 per student (No partial registration is possible)

Registration:

1.       Complete the Expression of Interest and Consent form

2.       Hand it in to the finance office along with $50 holding deposit to secure a place for your daughter.

3.       Once the school receives your daughter’s form and deposit they will register her online.

4.       We will then communicate further details with you as we move closer to the festival.

If you have any questions about the festival please contact Mr Kendall Perriam or Mrs Fiona Green at school on 4324 4022. We look forward to our students having an inspirational experience at the festival that they will remember for years to come and we hope that your daughter is able to be a part of this experience.
