Life Teen Conference Registration Opens
Registration for Life Teen SA’s three-day Empower Joburg 2018 conference has officially opened. The conference, to be held in Centurion, Gauteng, from April 13-15 at the Padre Pio Retreat Centre, aims to facilitate new ideas about youth ministry in South Africa.
“We hope that those attending the conference will leave the weekend re-energised in their ministries, ready to go back to their parishes and inspire those around them,” said an Empower 2018 statement.
“We hope that youth ministry will be more than an interest or a job but a missionary mindset, and that we can instil that same message in our youth as they go out into the world as young Catholics.”
Speakers and Attendees
Teachers, catechists, youth ministers, priests and religious are encouraged to attend.
The conference is also open to parish youth leaders who are not involved with the Life Teen programme but may still want to take part in the sessions.
Various speakers from around the country will address the conference, as will Stephen Estes, Life Teen International’s director of missions formation in the United States.
The registration fee is R900 per person. This includes accommodation and meals at the venue, which provides rooms with two to four single beds, each with their own en-suite bathroom, dining area and conference room. Space is limited to 100 stayover guests.
Should numbers exceed the venue capacity, there is also the day-pass option, the cost of which is R750 per person. This option includes meals and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Registration closes on Monday, March 26. All information and registration details are at www.lifeteen.org.za/joburg/
