Hearts Aflame is an annual event aimed at young catholics aged 18-35, and reflects the increasing trend towards traditional liturgy, devotions and practices amongst the 'New Evangelisation' crowd.
So there was daily office (lauds, vespers, compline), adoration, Mass, workshops and lectures.
This year, some of the folk associated with Juventutem from Latin Mass Melbourne and friends assisted by running two chant workshops, arranging for Bishop Meeking to give a 45 minutes talk on the Extraordinary Form and Summorum Pontificum, and training servers etc for a Pontifical Mass in the Extraordinary Form.
The various events received excellent feedback, so maybe it will become part of the event on an ongoing basis.....
And perhaps Australia's annual school of evangelisation might be persuaded to do something similar next year!
**Update: Just thought I'd note a link to a story on the sub-deacon for the event, Fr Nicolas Dillon, which Cath News carries an alert on. Fr Dillon grew up in Dunedin, and combines his work as a priest in Melbourne with a career as an organist performing around the world...read more here.
