Things to Bring to the Festival!

By the Youth 2000 Festival Team

A notebook

'Inheritance' is going to be 5 days of seriously good input - talks, conversations and workshops. There are going to be a lot of moments and pearls of wisdom that you're not going to want to forget! We'd really advise you to journal your spiritual journey over the retreat. It's a great way to enhance your prayer life and when the retreat's over, you'll have all your memories right there.

... and a Bible

They say when you go on holiday that you should take a good book. Well, on retreat, you want a really good book, perhaps the good book. We're going to be delving into Scripture over the festival because the Bible is one of the major places in which we hear the voice of Jesus and where we find the promise of our Inheritance. 

'Ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of Christ.' St. Jerome

... and a Torch

If you're a fan of staying up late chatting, you're probs going to want a torch especially if your phone is prone to running out of battery just at that tragically timed moment. Leaving our brand new cafe tent, you're going to want to be able to see the way back to your tent, nobody wants to be the person tripping over the guy ropes in the dark. Ain't nobody got time for that. And who knows, maybe you could indulge in some torch art like the above...

... and a Rosary

'The holy Rosary is a powerful weapon. Use it with confidence 
and you'll be amazed at the results.' St Josemaria Escriva

The rosary has been a big part of this prayer festival since its inception, with each new generations taking it up and championing it. If you don't have one, don't worry, you'll be able to get one free at the festival, but if you do, bring it along!

... and some Money

You're going to want to bring some cash to be able to buy some of the sweet, sweet Youth 2000 merch! Everything from clothes to albums will be up for grabs and all funds raised go straight in to paying off the festival. A bit of money would also be useful for the occasional coffee or snack in between meals, because there's nothing better than a boiling pot noodle on a cold camping night.

... and Warm clothes!

We're looking forward to some beautiful days of camping in the sun, but please do bring warm clothes too! The temperature can really drop in the evening, so that old hoodie or extra jacket can come in really handy as the night draws in. Wellies are a good shout too, both practical for mud and a classic staple of festival fashion.

We can't wait to see you guys! There's only 3 days to go but there's still time to invite a friend too. Safe travels & see you guys soon.

'We have a promise of an Inheritance that can never be spoilt or fade away, 
kept for you in the heavens.' 1 Peter 1:34
