Australian Catholic Youth Festival Student Reflections

From the 6th to the 10th of December 2017, Merici students Erin Smart, Taneisha Cook, Kate reedy, Maddison Green together with Ms Clare Freeman (Teacher) travelled to Sydney along with over 100 other youth from the Canberra/Goulburn Archdiocese to take part in the Australian Catholic Youth Festival. We were joined by another 15,000 young people at Sydney Olympic Park where we participated in four days of prayer, worship and celebration with an atmosphere of joy that we will never forget.
