The annual Youth 2000

Summer Festival was held in the Cistercian College in Roscrea recently (Aug 15th-18th) at the kind invitation of Abbot

Richard Purcell.

Over 1,000 young people travelled from all over Ireland for this wonderful celebration of faith.

For these four days the young people who gathered mixed with the Cistercians monks and sisters as they gathered as one big faith community. One of the organisers and main volunteers Maura Garrihy said: “This was our biggest festival to date and we are so delighted with how the festival went. The openness and welcome of the Cistercian community, and their witness was very powerful.”
