Newcastle mother and son, Ellen Hazelton and Jarrod Moore, attended the Australian Catholic Youth Festival (ACYF) in Melbourne 2013 and Adelaide 2015. Last year they attended World Youth Day (WYD) in Krakow, Poland. What draws them to these global church experiences?
Each August, the NALAG Centre for Loss & Grief encourages communities/organisations to come together to remember loved ones and other losses that we, as a community or individually, have faced, recently or in the past. This year’s theme is “Grief Anniversaries and Memories - acknowledging grief, promoting resilience”.
Faith formation is often achieved through gently accompanying another on their journey. As parish communities we have many opportunities to walk with children, families, individuals and couples through significant times in their lives.
