There are separate dormitory lodges for males and females. Each lodge has shared bathroom facilities and takes about 50 people. There is a common area for dining.

Will the weekend get booked out? Do I need to book early?

Warm clothing
Pillow slips*
Towel & Toiletries
Sporting equipment
Musical instruments
*(blankets and pillows provided)

Can non Catholics come along?
Yes we strongly encourage non Catholics to come and learn about Christianity, the Catholic Faith and enjoy great company. Many non Catholics have come along before and really enjoyed themselves. It is a friendly atmosphere and the talks are designed to cater for all.

Can people outside the 15 to 35 age bracket attend?
Under 15 please give us a call to discuss. Generally if you're a bit older than 35 but young at heart it's OK. If you are a parent of a young person attending give us a call as we might be able to invite you as a helper.

I am having trouble getting though on the mobile contact number. What should I do?
We have had some reception problems with this number. As an alternative contact Matt on (02) 8004-7047

What if I don't know anyone?
Take the plunge. We have small groups on the weekend so people don't get lost in the crowd.

Will there be adequate supervision at the weekend?
A few parents will be present at the weekend. There will also be a priest staying for the entire weekend and other priests coming and going.
