Each year across the world, dioceses and their local parishes celebrate World Youth Day on the Feast of Christ the King.
This year the Diocese of Bathurst is commencing a new initiative – a local celebration of World Youth Day in every parish across the Diocese. In these celebrations, young people from our schools and parishes will be invited to help animate and facilitate a parish celebration of prayer and Mass in their local parish.
This is a unique opportunity to celebrate the wonderful and great work that occurs across our Diocese in relation to youth ministry and also to remind us of the importance of youth in our church.
Our Priests and parishes, as well as all of our schools, are encouraged to make contact with each other to set aside time to plan for this important celebration.
