Youth 2000 Celebrate Twenty Years
Known colloquially as the ‘Holy Oxegen; there was a variety of activities over the four days. Events included: inspiring talks, a Christian rock concert, dynamic workshops on faith and the journey of life, games and soccer, quiet time for prayer, time for chilling out and making friends.
This year Fr Larry Richards from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania was the main speaker at the event. Coming to Ireland for the first time, he is a dynamic and inspiring priest who is involved in the ‘Reason for our Hope Foundation’. He is a frequent speaker at events in the USA and in an authentic and engaging way, he speaks about the person of Jesus Christ- The Reason for our hope. He has touched the hearts and lives of countless young people.
