The Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney invites high schoolers and young adults to the inaugural archdiocesan youth conference – Purpose Conference.

Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP welcomes the initiative and encourages participation, stating, “The intention of this conference is to offer young people an encounter with Jesus Christ. To engage in an inspiring experience of the Catholic faith, helping them to discover their purpose as children of God and leading them towards intentional discipleship.”

Purpose Conference will attract around 2500 participants and will include an array of unique, dynamic and engaging evangelisation elements including:

  • International guest speakers Jason Evert and Matt Fradd.
  • Prayer and Sacraments including a solemn mass for the feast of the Immaculate Conception led by Archbishop Anthony Fisher, adoration led by Bishop Richard Umbers and opportunities for reconciliation.
  • Music ministry, youth rallies and drama skits.
  • Outdoor festival.
  • Competitions and prizes.
  • Exhibitions – with opportunities to connect with parish youth groups and agencies.

Purpose Conference will also be a great post WYD opportunity for those who travelled to Lisbon recently. WYD pilgrims can reconnect with each other and continue to immerse themselves in catechetical and spiritual formation.
