The Brothers and Sisters of the Alliance of the Two Hearts in collaboration with our parish of St. Peters are calling all youth aged 12-30 to attend FIAT, a 4-day Marian Eucharistic Youth congress from January 19 - 22, 2017 at Encore Events Centre, 80 Derrimut Road, Hoppers Crossing. 100 years ago Our Lady appeared to 3 children in Fatima and gave them a special message that would prove to be relevant to today’s youth. Come along to a jam-packed event filled with games, workshops, talks by guest speakers, performances and of course prayer as we discover the beauty of her message. To register: Contact the OATH brothers on 0433 093 833. Early bird fee is only $49 before 31 December. Hope to see you there. God Bless!
