WYD Pilgrim Commissioning

Strathfield Commissioning Mass

With only 2 days to go before we jet-set off for an adventure of a life time, we gathered on each of our campuses with our local communities around the country to pray for and commission our student pilgrims and staff leaders.

Excited and keen to depart this Friday, we prayed that our energy and enthusiasm would sustain us through all the unique pilgrimage experiences that lay ahead!

We invite you to continue to pray for our 40 pilgrims, and all the young people around the world preparing for their own pilgrimage. May our faith be strengthened and inspired by the Holy Spirit, may God lead and protect us in our preparations and provide His grace for the journey.

Thank you to all family and friends of our WYD pilgrims, as well as our ACU Community – we thank God for the many ways they have provided support to us. We pray that God may reward them with His abundant blessings.

There is no turning back now – receiving our official ‘Australian Catholic University World Youth Day 2016‘ cap, t-shirt and prayer journals certainly helped as a reminder of what we’ve actually signed up for!

Stay tuned for our daily updates whilst abroad!
