THE musical talents of youth in Brisbane South Deanery featured in a special event called “Unplugged” at St Catherine’s Parish, Wishart, on November 24.
Dozens of high school students and young adults attended the night. However the age range covered from two to 72, with many families enjoying the music as well.
Five bands from the deanery played during the night while Louis Lamuri from Sunnybank Parish and Ben Hegerty from Upper Mt Gravatt Parish provided inspiring testimonies.
There was also the opportunity for some reflective prayer time as the crowd was invited to a candle-lit prayer space to offer their prayers for faith, forgiveness, Holy Spirit and peace.
Brisbane South Deanery youth co-ordinator Jaye Barros said one young person commented that he had never experienced anything like the event before and was blown away by the awesome music and talent of the young people involved.
The next “Unplugged” event will be held at Wishart Parish on February 23 at 7.30pm.
