Summer School
2018 Theme
 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” (JOHN 8:12)
You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid.  (MATTHEW 5:14)
On a long journey at sea, when night falls and the waves are crashing, it can be hard to know which way to turn. Sailors will peer off into the distance, hoping to see the light of a lighthouse and find the way home. Like a city on a hill when you're lost in the wilderness, the light of a lighthouse gives us direction. It tells us which way to travel and where the rocks are that will surely sink our ship. 

We are called to be the light of the world, a city built on a hill, but this light is not ourselves. The light is Jesus who told us, "I am the light of the world". It is His light in us that will be a beacon of hope for the world around us. 

Experience the transforming power of the Holy Spirit who can ignite the bright light of Jesus within us through the amazing journey of Summer School 2018.

"God is the light that illuminates the darkness ... and a spark of divine light is within each of us."

Pope Francis

Four locations.
One incredible journey.

For over 30 years Summer School has been serving the needs of young people around Australia and beyond. Come to a Summer School and walk the journey with us. Let God lead you along the special path he has planned for your life.


The Summer School of Evangelisation has a central purpose – the unique encounter between each person and the Living God whose great love and mercy has overflowed for all humanity from the dawn of creation. Through the resurrection of Jesus and the gift of the Holy Spirit, we are “made alive” (1 Corinthians 15:22). It is in this new life that we are able to live life to the full.

What is it?

A week long retreat into the powerful experience of the Holy Spirit, opening up possibilities for deepening faith, peace, healing, joy, freedom and passion for the Gospel of Jesus.

Journey with others

Journey with other Catholics for the week, forming a unique faith community, bonded by a common vision to seek God in the Summer of School of Evangelisation. Share and support each other through allocated small group time each day with those of similar ages. Build new friendships and discover the vibrant youth and young adults in our Catholic Church.

What happens?

Presentations & lectures are given by those with formal theological training and/or extensive personal experience of faith and Christian Community.
