The first steps of the Diocese of Parramatta’s journey to World Youth Day have been taken as hundreds of students, teachers, young people, youth leaders and chaplains who have said ‘yes’ to this experience gathered at Catholic Youth Parramatta’s LIFTED Launch at West HQ on Thursday 24 February.
Catholic Youth Parramatta’s LIFTED series is a unique and dynamic brand of large-scale experiences that inspire renewal and celebration of faith and mission in young people across Western Sydney and the Blue Mountains.
Alongside an evening of singing, dancing, prayer and witness, pilgrims from across the Diocese explored what pilgrimage is and how it changes a person.
