A picture speaks a thousand words … and this is so true of the experiences we had at the Confirmation Camp held on 6 & 7 April 2019.  The following photographs tell of the fun, camaraderie and closeness of nature at the campsite.  Fr Pat who was with us provided the spiritual input on the HOLY SPIRIT.



FAST24 - A SUCCESS!

FAST24, held on 5 & 6 April was a success, with over 40 participants attending on Friday night.
 
The night started with a shared dinner - a meal to last for 24 hours, followed by Stations of the Cross and some singing and opening activities before we learned more about homelessness in Melbourne by Kyle Hoad. There were moments of reflection, shared discussions and singing.
 
Cardboard boxes were prepared for those staying overnight.
 
The next day, activities started bright and early with a reflection on the night. There were more praise and worship, reflections, the Amazing gRace and T-Shirt making. After Vigil Mass, supper was shared with all FAST24 participants.
