2028 Congress

I'm heading up to Canberra this Thursday night to attend the ACSA conference which has now become a Congress for both students and young adults.

It's focusing on World Youth Day, specifically on the effects of what it can achieve for the future of the Church (hence the 2028 part of the title!)

You can check out what it's all about here:

It should be heaps of fun, they've got about 300 people attending which is a record for them.

It's really awesome to see this group grow steadily over the last few years.

I was part of the executive back in 2002/2003 and at that time we were holding onto it for dear life! Seriously there were times were it felt like there was no point and that everything was against us.

Times have changed however, and the leadership over the past six years or so has been just brilliant. They have built on and added to each year so that today we have this fabulous conference which six years ago I wouldn't have dreamed of wishing for!

So three cheers from me guys, I'm very proud of you!

Hi Monica,

Didn't we have fun in Canberra? Sure we lost a few limbs to frostbite, but what the hell?

Twas so good to see you again, and I've just been accepted to present a conference paper at UniMelb in late Nov (actually 30 Nov). Hope we could catch up then.

I think your blogs great! Have a look at mine and tell me what you think?

God Bless

Matt

Oh....my....goodness!!!! Even the fact that we have no fingers from the cold cannot take away from the fact that that was the best conference ever! I had so much fun! I'll check out your blog!
Cheers Matt!!
