Get keen for the Australian Catholic Youth Festival 2017 in Sydney!


The Australian Catholic Youth Festival (ACYF) is a national gathering of Catholic young people from December 7th-9th 2017  established by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference (ACBC). It exists to provide young people with opportunities to deepen their relationship with Jesus, be empowered to be disciples in the world today and encounter and celebrate the vitality of the Church in Australia.

In December 2017 the Festival will launch the Year of Youth, celebrating ten years on from hosting World Youth Day 2008. Find out more at:
