What is the Youth 2000 Summer Festival?
This is a lively 4 day festival with workshops, concert, inspiring talks, great music and prayer. And plenty of time for relaxing, chilling out and meeting new people! During the festival, you can get some spiritual R&R, meet other young Catholics in the same boat and give your faith a boost.
It takes place in Cistercian College, Mount Saint Joseph Abbey, Roscrea, Co Tipperary from 15th – 18th August 2013. The theme for the festival is:
"Fixing our eyes on Jesus who leads us in our faith"
What is the age group?
The festival is for all young people aged 16-35. If you are over 35, this festival isn’t really for you although we do always need mature volunteers to help with the running of the festival. If you are interested in coming along to help in some way, please contact the Youth 2000 National Office on 01 6753690 to discuss the matter further - we look forward to hearing from you.
How will the Roscrea Festival be set up?
This year's festival will be a mix between the College and marquee's. The grounds are idyllic and are perfect for an event of this sort.
What will the accommodation be like?
All you need to bring is your sleeping bag & pillow and we will provide you with an air bed for sleeping on in rooms/areas INSIDE THE COLLEGE, not a sleeping marquee in sight, wohoo! The picture (see left) is a nostalgic flash back from last year! There will be separate accommodation available for men and women. We would advise that you bring warm clothes and ear plugs! We recommend you don't bring expensive items such as your iPod or valuable jewellery. There will be NO INDIVIDUAL TENTS pitched this year.
