The Australian Catholic Bishops have decreed 2018 as a Year of Youth in Australia. The year will be a celebration of the many gifts that our young people offer to our society and an opportunity for the whole community to engage with our youth.
On Saturday December 16th, the Bishop of Bunbury, Most Rev Gerard Holohan will celebrate Holy Mass at St Patricks Cathedral to officially launch the Year of Youth in our region. Bunbury Catholic College staff and students are invited to this special occasion. The Mass will begin at 6pm and there will be refreshments and an opportunity for fellowship in the Parish Hall at its conclusion.
It will be lovely to see a number of our staff and students present to support the Year of Youth.
