Help the Pope and the Church…

Synod of Bishops 2018
As you will already know, Pope Francis has called a meeting of Bishops to discuss,“Young People, the Faith & Vocational Discernment” next October. 

The Diocesan Youth Service (Kenelm Youth Trust) and the Vocations Department are currently working on an 18 month programme focusing on this incredible opportunity put to our Church.

We have submitted input to our own Bishop’s Conference as part of England & Wales’ input to the Synod.

We will be hosting think tank events throughout the month of March in parishes & schools as well as two central days: for young people in schools on March 1st; and for young adults, youth ministers & volunteers on March 24th.
