The Australian Catholic Students Association (ACSA) is the national organisation for Catholic tertiary students, committed to witnessing to the Gospel message of hope as proclaimed by the Magisterium and Tradition of the Catholic Church. It is the only organisation that unites Catholic societies on university campuses and youth groups that cater for university students on a national level. Our executive is comprised of university students from across the country.
Each year in July ACSA holds its Annual Conference. It is an opportunity for students to be nourished spiritually, intellectually and pastorally, equipping them to fulfil their Christian vocation on their university campuses across Australia. This year the conference was in Brisbane at St Leo’s college at UQ in July.
The Conference is a gathering of students and alumni for a series of theological and philosophical talks, a celebration of the Mass as well as time for personal prayer and reflection. The Mannix Ball takes place on the Saturday night of the conference.
The conference is also a wonderful opportunity for Catholic students to network with like-minded peers from across the country, gaining social and professional connections for life. ACSA also runs one major state event each year, as well as smaller state functions.
