STATEMENT OF FAITH 2003:
Called from the four corners of our sun burnt land, we gathered at Fitzroy Falls, 74 of us with a desire for an encounter with Christ. Separated by distance, time and place, our faith brought us here, aligned under the Southern Cross, joined now as one, aware that we had formed a dynamic that could never be recreated.
Being made in the image and likeness of God, we explored the ways that God is revealed through creation, Christ and humanity. Through a conscious commitment to community we were nourished by each others gifts and talents. As young people we turn to God in prayer, supported by one another, seeking a deeper relationship with our God.
Following in the footsteps of St Eugene De Mazenod, we, the Oblate Youth of Australia, recognise our call to radical discipleship. We recommit ourselves to the building of God’s kingdom through the development of Oblate Youth Australia.
