Sydney is preparing to celebrate the one year anniversary of World Youth Day by holding SCENE (Sydney Congress Embracing the New Evangelization) July 19 - 26, 2009.
SCENE is modeled on the International Congresses of the New Evangelisation which have been held in European cities in recent years, Vienna (2003), Paris (2004), Lisbon (2005), Brussels (2006) and Budapest (2007). These were organised by the local Church in collaboration with international communities and speakers.
The international speakers have a definitely American flavor: For instance, The Fransican Friars of the Renewal are bringing the Catholic Underground to Sydney.
It looks like an exciting effort and definitely worth attending if you are going to be in Sydney that week.
