Reasons for Believing

Cost: £180 / Concessions: £160

From modest beginnings, the event has grown into a major annual conference for young adults, attracting students, seminarians and active young Catholics from all over Britain. Set in the beautiful grounds of Ampleforth Abbey, Yorkshire, the Faith Summer Session gives young Catholics a chance to ask questions about their faith and meet other young Catholics in an informal and prayerful atmosphere.

Keynote Talks

Talk 1: We can be sure that God exists: seeing God in the order of the Cosmos

Talk 2: Men and women are unique: the spiritual nature of the human being

Talk 3: The disaster of sin: why is it so difficult to be good?

Talk 4: Sacred Scripture: the yearning for God and the promise of the Messiah

Talk 5: The coming of Christ is planned from the beginning.

Talk 6: The Church: Christ remains with His people.

Conference structure

The format of the five days provides an excellent balance of social, spiritual and catechetical activities. As usual, the focus of the week will be the series of talks, each building on one another to develop a coherent, dynamic vision of the faith. Each day there will be Mass, morning and night prayer and, on one of the evenings, exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and confessions. There will also be plenty of time for recreation and socialising: the afternoons will be free for playing sports, walks or simply relaxing, while the evening's activities will include a ceilidh and Quiz night.

All accommodation and meals are provided on-site and specific dietary requirements are catered for. A tuck-shop is also available for the purchasing of sweets and snacks.
