Summer Session Success!

Summer Session Success!

The Faith Summer Session 2014 has just come to a close. Young people from across the UK and beyond gathered to hear talks on the topic of The Family In God's Plan and the Modern World. The Summer Session combines time for presentations on the faith, daily Mass, prayer and the opportunity for young Catholics to meet each other in an informal atmosphere. 

Faith Movement were proud to welcome Bishop Mark Davies of Shrewsbury Diocese who celebrated Mass and addressed the conference encouraging and challenging young Catholics to live out their faith in the public square with a special devotion to Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. The past few days have provided attendees with the opportunity to meet other young Catholics from different parts of the UK and make new friends.

If you've never been to a Faith event before why not consider coming to the forthcoming Winter Session 2014 at Stonyhurst College, Lancashire from 29/12 to 31/12? It is a great opportunity to learn about your Catholic faith and to meet other people! See the reactions of those who've attended the recent conference by following us on Twitter @FaithMovUK.
