LAST FEW SPACES REMAINING
Join us for a day of prayer and relaxation in the beautiful surroundings of the Divine Love Community House as we reflect upon the role of our own spiritual lives in our ministry with young people. Through inspiring talks, time for personal prayer and the Celebration of Mass we invite you to join us as we go deeper in our journey and explore how our faith can overflow into the lives of others. Email Kristi to book your place, but move fast as places are limited!
At the end of January, young people and young adults across the Diocese rolled up their sleeves to take part in mission projects in their local areas. This initiative was a response to the voice of young people who, ahead of the Church’s recent synod, spoke about a desire to engage in service and social action. The different teams later met in Wolverhampton to celebrate Mass, tune in to footage of World Youth Day in Panama and enjoy Panamanian cuisine.
A group in Oxford joined with the Companions of Malta to organise an afternoon tea (with live lounge music!) to approximately 20 homeless guests. In Staffordshire, young people joined Sanctus in Stoke-On-Trent, to welcome and support refugees. In Coventry, dozens of young people served lunch and made care packages for refugee families and homeless people, as well as raising £650. Young people from Birmingham and Wolverhampton held a sponsored sleep-over and raised over £400 to support Tabor House’s work with the homeless. The next day they served at a local soup kitchen alongside the local Sikh community.
Pope Francis affirmed young people’s desire to be missionaries when he wrote, in Evangelii Gaudium, "Missionary action is the paradigm of every work of the Church" (EG 15). The Pope has since announced that October 2019 will be an Extraordinary Mission Month, and KYT look forward to working closely with the Columbans to provide resources and mission opportunities in October.
An incredible opportunity to work with our partners serving the community of Meio da Serra, a poor settlement in the mountains of Brazil.
For two weeks you will be living simply, spending time at the mission centre, teaching English, running health care workshops, understanding a new culture, visiting family homes and working on service projects in the community.
Two of our mornings will be spent in the orphanage, playing games, sharing faith, singing songs, creating workshops, sharing donations and learning about daily life.
Our focus will also be on growing in our understanding of Discipleship as we work, pray and journey alongside Brazilian young adults from the CLM community.
We will also have the opportunity to celebrate Mass in the tiny chapel inside the base of the iconic CHRIST THE REDEEMER statue and enjoy a free day at Copacabana beach and Sugar Loaf Mountain.
An opportunity that changes hearts! Not to be missed! Are you brave enough?
