Praise and worship like you never have before

The Diocesan Council for Ministry with Young People (DCMYP) ended a busy year with a praise and worship evening at St Pius X High School, Adamstown.

Designed to emulate the catechesis sessions at World Youth Day (WYD) and the Australian Catholic Youth Festival (ACYF), the praise and worship evening was led by the Spirit and Truth band and involved personal testimony from two WYD pilgrims, Amber-Jane Parker and Fr Greg Barker.

Those gathered had a wonderful night, expressing their faith through music, song, dance, prayer, witness and finally Mass. It was a great opportunity for those who have never attended a WYD or ACYF to enjoy a transformative faith experience outside Sunday Mass.

Another highlight was viewing a short film chronicling the WYD experience in Italy and Poland in July and August. 

You couldn’t help but feel the grace of God’s presence in the auditorium. It was faith in community and a unique experience of worship that everyone should encounter.
