The LAMP at Clyde
Will be hosted this year by the archdioceses of Perth from Dec 8th to 10th on behalf of ACBC at Perth. The festival will use the scriptural focus of the 2020 Plenary Council theme “listen to what the spirit is saying” (Rev2:7). Young people from year 9 (in 2019) to young adults 30 years of age are invited to the event. It is a great opportunity for young people 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. If you would like to attend this festival, please contact Siji through the parish office at 59417315.

FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT
This was the theme of a day hosted by the new St Thomas the Apostle parish, Clyde North, and was a gratifying experience for about 70 young people.
Below is a testimony of one of our parish youth. “Fight the Good Fight Youth Retreat helped me and many others reconnect spiritually with God, through songs, prayers, dramatised acts, personal stories and experiences. We also took part in various activities including Adoration, Sacrament of Reconciliation and Holy Mass. Towards the end we celebrated with a party! Like many of us, I too enjoyed the retreat and the time I spent there, and hope to attend another”. Aleena Thoppil, Year 9
