This week: youth and young adults.
A diocesan Youth Forum is planned which will coordinate youth activities at parish, deanery and diocesan levels. It will be headed in the deanery by Matt Williams from Walton le Dale who is a highly regarded young Re teacher at St Augustine’s. So, I’m looking for a volunteer aged between 18 and 25 who is willing to represent the parish. Any ideas?
Pope Francis has asked that a World Day of Prayer for Young People be celebrated in each Diocese on the weekend of Palm Sunday. In Salford the celebration for young people will take place on Saturday 8th April at the Cathedral Centre and Cathedral starting at 1pm. The afternoon will conclude with Palm Sunday Mass at 4pm.

Your Voice Matters – Mega Youth Poll. In 2018, Pope Francis will invite Bishops and others to Rome to talk about Youth, Faith and Vocational Discernment. They will discuss how the Catholic Church can accompany young people in their faith and help them to hear God’s call. If you are aged between 13-29 years old, the Catholic Church in England and Wales would like to hear from you. We want to hear what life is like, your thoughts on faith and how you connect with the Catholic Church. To help you tell us we have created a Youth Poll that you can access using this link
or by scanning this QR code with your phone. If you’re not in this age group but would like to help, please encourage the young people you know to respond to this poll by giving them the link or QR code. For further queries about the Youth Poll please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
