Countdown to LYG 2017

Greetings Lasallians,

Are you ready for the Lasallian Youth Gathering, 10-14 July 2017?  There are only 4 days to go!

Our team is energised to finally meet you and engage in an action packed, life-giving and practical program that will help you answer the call. The LYG Band are raring to go and they've have planned some great beats for the soundtrack of the week. Some of our band members have performed to large crowds right around the country and are ecstatic to be present at LYG.

Here's a sneak peak of the LYG Band!

We would love to introduce you to Band members; Josh (on Bass), Seb (Saxophone), Matt (Guitar & Vocals), Jess (Vocals), Kevin (Drums) and Damian (Vocals & Keys).


Opal Card Changes

Opal has recently announced an increase in travel fares for the Sydney Metropolitan area. At the time of our original calculations, costs would have been below $20.The minimum cost to recharge an Opal card is now $30, which is required for all travel during LYG. If you need more information head to www.opal.com.au and read about Opal Card changes.

Service Day

As Lasallians, one of our core values is service and helping others. We have a wide range of service opportunities that our team have pre-allocated for you to help make a difference in the broader Sydney community during LYG.

These include:

  • Accompaniment of people who have a disability
  • Planting trees in a local community space
  • Packing and preparing a container bound for Papua New Guinea
  • Maintenance in a local Brothers' community
  • Creating an artwork for the Lasallian family
  • Clean-up Australia

As a new addition to the program, there will be a Lasallian Pilgrimage through the heart of Sydney ending at Mary MacKillop Place. We can't wait to share this experience with you.
