The Australian Bishops have identified the liturgical year of 2018, beginning on the first Sunday of Advent (3rd December 2017), as a national Year of Youth.

The Year of Youth invites the Church into prayerful discernment about the importance and life-giving presence of young people in the local Church and society. It calls for dialogue and active engagement focused on the reconnection and renewal of a new generation of young people in the life of the Church.

Year of Youth Aims

  • prayerfully discern the Australian Bishops vision for ministry with young people, Anointed and Sent
  • authentic and personal engagement by Church leaders in the challenges and success in young people’s lives
  • acknowledging the Holy Spirit at work in the lives of young people, and young people acting upon the Holy Spirit in the life of the Church;
  • upholding the dignity of young people, ensuring a safe environment from physical, emotional and spiritual harm

The aims for the Year of Youth dovetail together with the goals of Anointed and Sent: an Australian vision for catholic youth ministry provide a rich framework and challenges local faith communities to explore new horizons as they accompany young people into maturity.
