Faith Winter Session 2014 began yesterday at Stonyhurst College, Lancashire with around 200 young Catholics from across the UK in attendance. Bishop Mark Davies of Shrewsbury preached at Mass yesterday evening about St Thomas of Canterbury and how his yes to God should inspire young people to have courage in responding to their vocation. Archbihop Leo Cushley of St Andrews and Edinburgh preached today on the importance of witnessing to our faith so that we can bring salvation to others.
The talks of the conference have sought to explain what it means to say we have faith in God by looking at the evidence for His existence and his eternal plan to found the Church as man's true environment in which he comes into contact with his creator. Tomorrow's talk will look at the witness of the saints and Our Lady as role models for young people as they seek to imitate Christ in their daily lives.
