A Eucharistic Conference for young people aged 13-30 - Adore 2004 - will be held at the Victory Function Room of Melbourne's Telstra Dome, Docklands, from 22-25 January 2004.

Adore 2004 is organised by the Youth Sector of the Alliance of the Holy Family International, located at Deer Park in the Melbourne Archdiocese. Its aim is to sanctify families and young people through prayer, rosary, confession, adoration and Communion.

The conference and its program has the approval of Archbishop Denis Hart: "I have granted my permission and recommendation for the project and commend it to those who can be encouraged to participate."

Last year's Adore 2003 was held in Omaha, Nebraska, with Archbishop Elden Curtiss celebrating the opening Mass, reminding the young people of Pope John Paul II's call for them to be apostles of the third millennium who will keep the spirit of Jesus alive in the world.

Archbishop Hart will celebrate Mass at the opening of Adore 2004 on 22 January 2004, and this will be followed by a play The Passion and Eucharistic Adoration.

On the second day there will be a procession of the Blessed Sacrament from St Patrick's Cathedral to Telstra Dome, followed by Benediction. There will be talks on Eucharistic themes from Msgr Peter Elliott, Robert Haddad (who works with the Sydney University Catholic Chaplaincy), Fr Peter Joseph and several visiting US speakers.
