Called to Action
As we are still unsure about how much lockdown restrictions will have eased, and to what extent individuals will feel comfortable gathering in large numbers, we have not put a date in for this stage for 2021.
We still hope that something may be possible later in 2021, possibly around Youth Sunday (20/21 November)
Based on the positive experience many young people have from large scale events such as the diocesan Lourdes pilgrimage, Flame and Adoremus; the Confirmation programme will include a day for young people to attend where they will meet other young people from across the Diocese also preparing for Confirmation.
As well as this large scale gathering being a reminder of the universal nature of the church it will also afford young people an opportunity to listen to different speakers, be involved in workshops and celebrate Mass at the end of the day with the Archbishop.
At the end of the day, the hope is that young people who have attended will be further equipped to use the gifts of the Holy Spirit to go into the world and put their faith into action.
