Next Sunday is Youth Sunday on the Feast of CHRIST THE KING.
Pope Francis has said, “Every young person has something to say … something to say to priests, sisters, bishops and even the Pope.’ He is encouraging young people to turn to the Church and share their thoughts, cares and concerns. Youth Sunday is a chance ………. to encourage young people to make their voice heard as we too believe they have something to say to their parish priests, to their chaplains, to their local Church and beyond.www.nationalyouthsunday.org.uk
