Broken Bay in the spotlight at ACYF

Australian Catholic Youth Festival 2017 

7 December 2017 General Interest

Catholic Youth Broken Bay were the stars of the morning plenary session on the opening day of the Australian Catholic Youth Festival at the Sydney Showgrounds today.

Ashleigh Green, Broken Bay star CYBBie, featured in "Hangin' with Hilda' talking about what gives her joy. Ashleigh spoke about her work as a Social Worker with CatholicCare Broken Bay and the night she spent taking care of a young girl who found herself homeless after having to leave her group home. Ashleigh took her to a hotel, they did their nails and put on mud masks and bonded. "It gave me great joy to be able to help her that night," said Ashleigh.

Students from Mercy Catholic College and St Pius X (both in Chatswood) featured in a very moving dramatisation about a young girl feeling alone in a scary world. Their drama will continue throughout each plenary session at ACYF.

The house band is also all Broken Bay members, led by Simon Hyland. They performed to close out the plenary session this morning to a wonderful ovation from the crowd of approximately 12,000 people at Qudos Bank Arena.

Bishop Peter A Comensoli was the celebrant at a beautiful Mass this afternoon in the Worship Centre.
