What does it mean to authentically and safely accompany young people in our parish communities? Young People throughout the Synod process, particularly in our own Diocese, are asking for support in their struggle with discernment of life choices. Those working with young people can no doubt think of the people who accompanied them and their own faith journey. We are therefore offering a choice of two twilight workshops to offer support and ideas on accompaniment with young people. Please feel free to attend the workshop nearest to you, just email and let us know!
