‘Go and make disciples of all nations’

In his Catholic Outlook July 2012 Letter, Bishop Anthony said WYD brings the faith of young people to life, enlarging their sense of belonging to the Church.

I pray that many of our young people will make it to Rio so that they can in turn inspire the rest of us to be living Gospels for Western Sydney,” Bishop Anthony said.
