Are you looking for some refreshment and revitalisation? Hoping to meet like-minded young people to share in your walk of faith or are you simply searching for something more to life? Why not come along to Youth 2000’s Summer festival in Clonmacnois, Co Offaly from 4th – 7th August 2011.

This is a lively 4-day Catholic festival for 16-35 year-olds with workshops, concert, inspiring talks, great music, prayer, and plenty of time for relaxing, chilling out and meeting new people.

Our theme for this year is

“Lord, it is wonderful for us to be here.” Matt 17:4

The guest speaker for the festival is Fr. Bernard Murphy, of the Community of Franciscan Friars of the Renewal. Fr Bernard works primarily with the poor and destitute and is well known for his inspirational preaching and infectious joy.

Reflecting on their experience at last year’s festival, one young person commented:

“When I arrived I really did not know what to expect but now I am so thrilled to have made the journey – it was so fantastic and inspiring, and for the first time in my life I feel as if I met God personally.”

Youth 2000 invites you to come along and experience this weekend for yourself. The festival is donation-only with free buses from around the country, just bring a sleeping bag.
