These days, there is much misunderstanding about what “LOVE” means.
The world creates its own definition about what is love and how to love and be loved.
But, what is REAL LOVE?

This year, at Embrace the Grace you are invited to dive into the real meaning of love mirrored through the gift of the Holy Family. God the Father gave each member of the Holy Family the freedom to choose LOVE every single day. This allowed them to become living witnesses of God’s love even today. You too, are invited to be this living witness who is loved and is able to share His love to others!

So come along and invite your friends, siblings, cousins, coworkers for this amazing four-day youth conference!

Date      : 9 – 12 December 2021

Venue   : Swan Valley Adventure Centre

Age      : 16 – 25 years’ old

Price      : $290 (inclusive of four days’ accommodation, meals, activities, and merchandise)


Slide This year was my first ETG, and I will be forever grateful to my friend who encouraged me to sign up! From beginning to end I simply had a wonderful time. And who wouldn’t when you’re surrounded by like-minded new friends, get to listen to incredible speakers and have the opportunity to explore your relationship with God!

I don’t know the highlight of the camp. I could say the dinner dance, in which we all dressed up and danced our hearts out, or the mini Olympics, with the line to the showers snaking out to the corridors after getting mucky with eggs and water! Adoration, Reconciliation and daily Mass had to be up there on the list, with God’s Presence being as real as I’d ever experienced, and of course, who knew washing dishes could be so fun when there were more than 10 people in the kitchen singing out to a playlist on Spotify!

I felt that towards the close of the camp, everyone had grown in such faith and understanding, which was truely amazing, and was thanks to the inspiring speakers and group leaders! I had an incredible 5 days and can’t wait for the next camp!

So much fun, laughs and great experience were shared across the 5 days at New Norcia. Hope to see more of our youth in the future!
