These past months have provided an opportunity to reflect on the formation of our young people who wish to live as disciples of Christ and be strengthened by the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

We have decided that this formation will take the form of the following six sessions or “encounters” with Christ (dates to be confirmed):

1. An introductory Session

2. Encountering Christ in the Eucharist: Youth Mass at Brentwood Cathedral

3 Encountering Christ in Prayer and Worship: Flame Congress – Saturday 15th March

4. Encountering Christ in His creation: Epping Forest Mass

5. Encountering Christ in the Poor and Weak: Serving at a Homeless shelter, St James’s Church, Spanish Place

6. Encountering Christ through His Spirit: Retreat Day

Our young men and women will receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit at the 11.30 a.m. Mass on Pentecost Sunday June 8th 2025

This formation is for young men and women who are Year 12 + and resident in the parish. The expectation would be that our young people would participate fully in all six formation encounters.

Do you want a personal encounter with Christ?

Do you want to strengthen your faith by receiving the gifts of the Holy Spirit?

Do you want to live your Catholic faith as a young adult with increased commitment and joy?

Do you want to be with other young people who also desire these things?

If so, please pick up a registration form at the Church entrances and return it to Clergy House before Sunday 7th July 2024.
