After some opening prayers led by Bishop Marcus Stock, there will be an introduction to Pope Francis’s Apostolic Exhortation Gaudete et Exsultate (On the call to Holiness in the Modern World) followed by small group discussions about the implications.
There will also be the opportunity to explore some topics in more detail in small group work. The topics include families and young people, homelessness, ex-offenders and prisoners, disabled people, older people and asylum seekers and refugees.
After lunch the Diocesan Youth Service will present a showcase of the Faith in Action programme which has recently been introduced in this Diocese for young people.
With some more opportunity for small group discussions around Faith in Action followed by the official launch of some diocesan initiatives, there will be some closing prayers and the event is expected to finish ahead of 3pm, with time for talking to one another at the end.
ALL are welcome to come along.
