Scene III

The third Sydney Congress embracing the New Evangelisation is underway in the city. The Congress began on Wednesday and will conclude tomorrow, Sunday. This year the Congress has focussed on the great grace that WYD08 was to the life of the Church in this city. The majority of the participants are young people who have, again, filled the Cathedral and the city centre with their enthusiastic presence. And again, for the third year running, the Vocations Expo has been set up in Martin Place, 11am - 4pm, Wednesday to Friday.This is an extraordinary witness of faith and Catholic identity right in the heart of secular Sydney. Its presence has drawn many people in, turned many heads, and provoked innumerable moments of reflection. I don't know of another city which has hosted WYD in which the momentum caused by WYD has been so maintained. May the Holy Spirit continue to bring great renewal to the Church in Sydney.
