.- Forty five Sisters of Life have arrived in Sydney, Australia to host the Love and Life site at the Notre Dame University in conjunction with the Knights of Columbus and the John Paul II Institute.

They are here to minister to the youth who are seeking answers to the hot button issues that many young Catholics have questions about, Sr. Mary Elizabeth told a press conference today.

“Everyone knows what the Church teaches, but very few people know why the Church teaches what she teaches.”

“We really want to invite Catholic youth into the vision of the human person that the Church proposes, which is the vision … that we are made for something great, and something more.”

Around 20,000 young people are expected to come through the Life and Love site to listen to teachings by internationally renown speakers about the dignity of the human person and to pray with the sisters.

“We expect many young women to discover their vocation, whether it be in a life of marriage or to follow the radical call to religious life in their World Youth Day experience,” said Sr. Mary Elizabeth.

Sr. John Mary revealed that she received affirmation of her vocation at a previous World Youth Day pilgrimage, and said that nearly half of their sisters in formation also received a similar call to vocation in World Youth Day experiences. 

They have set up a blog to allow Catholics across the world to keep updated about their activities in World Youth Day and to download the daily talks. For more information visit http://www.lovelifelink.org.

The Sisters of Life have 58 sisters, and 6 convents in locations across the United States and Canada.
