Cultured Cafe

Thursday the 2nd of March was the first Cultured Café for the year hosted by the Archdiocesan Office for Youth. We were excited to kick things off with our guest speaker Roby Curtis. Roby is a singer and songwriter from Brisbane who has started his own ministry called Blind Eye, where he works with the vulnerable and homeless of Brisbane. We had a great attendance with over 70 young people coming along to hear Roby speak.  Roby shared about his story and how growing up, his family would invite over the poor and marginalised for meals most  days and how as he came to be a teenager he learnt that this was not a common practice in other families. Roby had a conversion experience around the age of 18 and after that noticed a need to live out the gospel through working with the poor in a similar way to how his parent did in his childhood. Roby used his music to break down cultural boundaries with the homeless of Brisbane. He now helps the vulnerable by running a drop in centre 3 days a week and helping them get back on their feet not only in society but also in their spiritual lives. His work is changing lives of hundreds of homeless people. We had an opportunity to ask Roby questions about his life and gain insight into how he deals with the success and setbacks in his ministry. Everyone who came left inspired and ready to make a change in the world.
