The Lasallian Youth Gathering Program
Our Program is tailored to suit the needs of each participant, delivering relevant and engaging content for the three participant groups. There will be several plenary sessions that gather the entire Young Lasallian family together for inspiration, insight and fun.
Workshops will be divided into three streams that will cater for all three Young Lasallian audiences:
Each participant will be able to choose from a wide variety of workshop electives. For the teachers we are working towards ensuring that these sessions count towards your required professional learning hours via accreditation from BBI The Australian Institute of Theological Education (formerly known as Broken Bay Institute).
Faith, Service and Community
While gathered together for LYG17, our Faith will be nourished and animated by the Young Lasallians team, a live band, liturgies and opportunities for reflection, the presence of Brothers and of other committed Lasallians, and more! We will also be celebrating Mass at St Mary's Cathedral with one of our keynote speakers, Fr. Hoang Pham, who was formerly a De La Salle Brother.
As Lasallians, one of our core values is Service. LYG17 will include a hands-on experience of service in the Sydney community, as well as the opportunity to put that experience in context through shared reflection and input on our Lasallian tradition and values.
Our Community at LYG17 will include members from right across the District of Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan and Papua New Guinea. Additionally, we are expecting groups from the United States and beyond to join us. In light of this we have ensured that there will be a "Sydney experience" where participants will be able to experience this iconic city.
