“Embrace the Grace” Youth Conference

Embrace the Grace (EtG) is an annual five day youth conference run by Catholic Youth Ministry (CYM) and Respect Life Office (RLO). The conference provides teenagers and young adults with an opportunity to freely engage with their faith and life’s greatest questions.

EtG began in 2004 by RLO to put into practice and create an experience that would show, teach and live the Gospel of Life and the dignity of the human person. EtG is not just a place to learn about faith but an opportunity to experience a community that is a witness to this faith.

Now in its 13th year, EtG continues to transform young lives from across WA. Join us for an enriching and powerful experience where you will be exposed to the beauty of the Catholic faith to truly discover yourself through the discovery of God.

More information on this life-changing youth conference can be found here and here.
