Sorry for the lack of updates. Over the weekend I was at the Confirmation initiation camp help for the Confirmation class and the secondary 4 students who will be confirmed next year. We have about 65 kids, with 40 from my class. It was a riot. I delivered a session on the meaning of confirmation and in toto had only about 6 hours of sleep over both days.
Anyway, I'd like to share with you the official welcome of the World Youth Day cross in Australia.
