Summer School
2020 Theme
If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
 (JOHN 8:36)   
If you make my word your home you will indeed be my disciples, you will learn the truth and the truth will set you free. (JOHN 8:31-32)
Freedom is the central theme of the gospel and the number one desire of our culture, but do we truly understand what it means to be free? Is freedom the ability to do what we like or the right to do as we ought, as Pope John Paul II said?

What we do know for sure is that "where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom" (2 Cor 3:17). Chains are broken and cage doors are swung wide. With the Spirit of God, we can take courage and step outside - far beyond what we thought was possible -into a life lived on purpose for a purpose. For freedom Jesus sets us free! Let us live that freedom!

"Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom."

2 CORINTHIANS 3:17

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. Lectures topics include Scripture, Catholic teaching, Evangelisation, Living as a Disciple, and Prayer. Seminars offer a practical opportunity to experience, participate in, and question, issues, methods, and vision for evangelisation in areas such as: Prayer, Discernment, Healing, Gifts of the Holy Spirit, Intercession and Faith in Action. There are many opportunities for communal and personal prayer, including Charismatic praise and worship and Mass.
