Flame Ministries International’s 33rd Annual Congress will be held from January 26th to 29th 2023, at Mater Christi Parish Community Centre, 340 Yangebup Rd, Yangebup, 6164.

The theme is ‘Heart of Worship’ and the aim is to bring participants into a deeper and more intimate relationship with God.

Although the format of the 2023 Congress is similar to other years with in-depth day teachings and workshops, and powerfully Spirit-led evening rallies, this year differs in the change of location and that it is directed towards the younger generation.

The keynote speakers are Fr Joseph Laundy, Chaplain, Catholic Youth Ministry, and Mario Borg, Director, 24/7 Youth Ministries.

But it’s not just the young who will gain from the Congress, the young at heart will also benefit greatly and are most welcome.

The Holy Spirit knows no boundaries of age and all speakers – including Flame’s Senior Directors Kaye Rollings and Cyrus D’Souza – will draw deeply on His guidance and power in the presentation of their messages and workshops.

Several generations of Perth Catholics have been blessed by the powerful messages delivered by local, national and international speakers through the years at Flame’s Annual Congress.

The Congress has become a well-known and welcome event in Perth and attracts participants from across the state.

Those attending have often commented how their lives have been enriched and even changed by the power of the Holy Spirit working through the weekend’s workshops and rallies.
