Light of the Cross Festival rocks Wollongong

Today contained many highlights!

Fire trucks transported the Cross from Fairy Meadow to Para Meadows School. Here the students had a chance to pray before and venerate the Cross and Icon before they were handed over to students from Wollongong University.

A procession was made to the University and then a liturgy was held.








St Columbkilles also had some time with the Cross before it was taken to the Light of the Cross Festival at the Win Entertainment Centre.

Here, thousands of people from all over the diocese gathered together to experience the World Youth Day Cross in a festival including music, dance and drama from the amazingly talented local youth. The show also featured performances from Emmanuel Worship, Australian Idol finalist Joseph Gatehau and Aria Award winner Damien Leith. Here are some pics to show you how cool it was!
