Being a truly Catholic community, Clancy is a place of the “new evangelisation” and our aim for evangelisation is:
- – To foster the personal and spiritual growth of each young person
- – To draw young people into responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the Catholic faith community
- – To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today
(Anointed and Sent: An Australian Vision for Catholic Youth Ministry, p. 7)
The College also has a history of strong representation at international World Youth Days, with 30 students and 4 teachers attending the 2016 World Youth Day in Krakow, Poland. Visit the the WYD16 Blog.
The focus of 2017 is the Australian Catholic Youth Festival. The festival is a fantastic opportunity for students to take an active role in their faith. ACYF will take place in Homebush from the 7th- 9th December this year, with 3 days of guest speakers, workshops and performances in a similar style to those held during World Youth Day.
The festival is open to young people from Year 9 to 30 years of age and will attract about 15,000 people. ACYF will conclude with a pilgrimage across the city, which will lead to a spectacular gathering of youth in the Domain where a final mass will be celebrated. The entire Year 10 cohort, along with students from Years 9 and 11, will participate in this wonderful opportunity by attending the festival for 3 days. This is an exciting opportunity for students to develop their faith and be part of the wider Catholic community.
More information about the festival can be found on the festival website.
