VIC State Youth Conference (District of Melbourne)

His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia, College Dean, gave the keynote presentation at the Victorian State Youth Conference for the Archdiocesan District of Melbourne which explored the theme ‘Change: How Do we Navigate Ourselves in a Diverse World.’ The conference was held on Saturday 25 January at Oakleigh Grammar in Melbourne. The Archbishop’s presentation was entitled ‘The Cross Stands While the World Turns.’ Dr Mario Baghos, Lecturer in Patristics and Church History, also represented St Andrew’s at the conference. Dr Baghos addressed the College’s ecclesial phronema, study programs—including facilitation classes in Melbourne—special intensive units and events, research, as well as its positive outlook for the future under the visionary leadership of His Eminence Archbishop Makarios. St Andrew’s warmly congratulates the organisers of and contributors to the conference, which from all reports was a tremendous success. Photos kindly supplied by Ms Kerrie Neophytou.
