IGNITE Conference 2016 – an inspiring annual event for Australian youth

22 September 2016


Ignite 2016IGNITE Conference can be considered as the greatest evangelizing event in the year for the youth in the Archdiocese of Brisbane that draws young people together to experience and see the love of God in one another. IGNITE is also a wonderful time when the youth can come in contact with the mercy of God as they come to reconcile with Him in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Spring comes at the beginning of September and soon after that is this remarkable event. This occasion is an opportunity to spark again the fire in the heart of the young generation. Youth is the “spring season” of a society and the Church, and IGNITE lights up the spirit of this “spring”. The theme of this year is “Revelation” - God is always speaking to us through our daily life: events, people and nature. However, we often miss out His revelation because we are too busy with other things. As the theme suggests, this Ignite 2016festival is a time for families, teenagers and 

Ignite 2016youth to learn to listen to God’s voice. Tremendous songs, testimonies, workshops, Sacraments and stalls lead all attendants to a deeper insight and discover God in their hearts. The outlook and success of the event proves God’s abundant grace, the support of the whole Archdiocese and the untiring preparation works of the organizers and volunteers. This is our Church’s future: young, enthusiastic, hopeful, joyful and daring! Thanks be to God for the marvellous grace that He has never ceased to give to his people.
