Youth Round-up: Apr 2012
I pray that you are having a holy and peaceful Lent.
FAITHFUL on Ice – After a straw poll of the young people at FAITHFUL (our youth group for school years 10+) we decided to make a trip to the Leisure Box on Pershore Street in Birmingham for some ice skating. I’m a bit of a Bambi myself, and many of the young people made me look very ordinary! Unfortunately, the night didn’t pass without incident as one of our young people broke their wrist following a fall and we ended the evening in Q.E. A&E. However, she is on the mend, and I very much hope that I can behave with the same dignity she displayed, should I ever break my wrist!
Training our Young Leaders – On Monday 12th March I took two young leaders from the Wednesday Youth Club to some Child Protection training at the Diocesan Office. This continues our ongoing effort to equip our leaders to work safely and effectively with our young people and to give them skills to take on into their future employment.
Relax. It’s Catalyst: Calm – On 24th March some of us from the parish attended Catalyst: Calm, a youth event at Birmingham Cathedral held three times a year. This month’s event drew on the deep spirituality of the contemplative and meditative traditions in Christian prayer, encouraging young people to practice skills that they can incorporate into their own prayer lives. Please keep an eye out for further Catalysts this year.
Confirmations 2012 – If you have not yet been Confirmed – and would like to be – there is an opportunity to join a group in preparation for this Sacrament in the coming months. If this is you, then please give it some thought and prayer and if you want more information speak to myself or to any of the clergy or readers.
