Hosting the inaugural Festival, the staff and people of the Archdiocese of Melbourne bought the Festival to reality after years of dreaming and planning.
Held at ACU’s Fitzroy Campus, the Festival hosted over 3,300 attendees and was the largest national gathering of Catholic youth since WYD 2008 in Sydney. The scriptural theme of ‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon me’, linked to the Australian Bishops vision for young people.
An overview of the Festival can be found in the ACYF 2013 Reflection Booklet and daily highlights videos:
