Sydney, Australia, Jul 12, 2008 / 01:39 am (CNA) .- The Australian Catholic Bishops Conferenceâ€™s National Office for Evangelization has launched an evangelization program called â€śRewiredâ€ť to sustain the enthusiasm of young Catholics after World Youth Day.
The Rewired resource program can be run by youth leaders over six sessions. A press release from the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference (ACBC) says the program provides an environment for young people to reflect, grow, and share their faith.
â€śRewired is for young people deeply immersed in their faith as well as those who havenâ€™t had much to do with the Church at all,â€ť said Marita Winters, director of the ACBCâ€™s National Office for Evangelization. â€śIt is an opportunity for young people in a parish, school, or on a university campus to invite their peers to look at their faith and tradition in a welcoming environment. It is also a useful tool for a parish which wants to start a youth group.â€ť
â€śAs the Body of the Christ, we all want to be able to tap into that level of excitement and raised spiritual awareness that is so often a feature of World Youth Day, and to translate it into a deep and lasting connection with the life of the Church,â€ť Winters said.
The Rewired program will go on sale during World Youth Day Week. More information is available at www.evangeliseaustralia.com.
