Hundreds of young people and young adults were at World Youth Day @ Home, back in June. We were pleased to welcome some very exciting guests, including David Wells, RISE Theatre, Fr.Frankie Mulgrew, CJM, John Pridmore, Sarah Kroger, Archbishop Peter Comensoli and Matt Maher.
Although heavy rain persisted for most of the weekend, there was a fantastic festival feel throughout: a hog roast and great live music got the party going on Saturday evening, and throughout the weekend, people were inspired by what they heard.
Here are some thoughts from young people who attended:
"There was fantastic input: really inspiring,and it enabled me to make a step in my life that I had not had the courage to do. Matt Maher enabled a freedom in worship that really hit deep."
"There was a great variety of speakers who all gave really inspirational talks that left us with something to reflect on and discuss over the weekend. The music was incredible and was a good time for reflection. All the performances from RISE theatre linked really well with the themes that were discussed in some of the talks."
