Capuchin Friars at the Australian Catholic Youth Festival

Monday, 07 December 2015

The Capuchin Friars were in attendance at the Australian Catholic Youth Festival in Adelaide from 3rd-5th December 2015. About 3500 young people from all over Australia attended the big event at the Adelaide Convention Centre along with many bishops, priests and religious from a host of congregations.

The friars had a vocations stall in which they promoted the Capuchin charism and also that of the Franciscan Immaculatine Sisters. They also contributed to the festival by offering a workshop on "St Francis of Assisi for young people today" which was very well attended. Hopefully many of the young people will be inspired by the life of St Francis and choose to follow Christ according to the pattern that he showed us.

There will soon be a vocation weekend in Sydney for young men contemplating a call to consecrated life (26-28 February 2016). Young women may like to contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. in Brisbane. Let us continue to pray for vocations as this year of consecrated life draws to a conclusion.
