Extreme Mission-Live Loud is a youth event held in conjunction with the Perth Catholic Youth Ministry that will see about 400 young people from around WA converge on the university grounds for a night of music, mission and being loud.

Catholic Youth Ministry director Anita Parker said it was a way for young people to be inspired about how to make a difference in the world.

‘At World Youth Day, the young people were challenged to seek out the poor and needy in South America, to go on mission and serve those in need,’ she said.

‘Our desire was to bring the World Youth Day spirit back to Perth to go on mission and service here locally too.

‘Young people from Perth who have just returned from the gathering of three million young people in Rio de Janeiro will share their experiences and mission that they encountered at World Youth Day.

‘We want to inspire young people today to make a positive difference in the world, to think about the extreme mission that individually they are able to tackle in their own lives and to take it on with great joy and live loud because each of us has the ability to make a difference in the world.’

Extreme Mission-Live Loud will be held at Notre Dame University on August 15 from 6pm to 9pm.
