Youth Events and Activities in the Diocese

The Source

The Diocesan Youth Ministry Team run a monthly meeting at St Mary’s Cathedral, Newcastle upon Tyne, on the 1st Wednesday of every month from October through to May.

Over 300 young people attend every month and is very popular.

Most of our High School Chaplains also advertise this in their schools, so if you cant get information directly from YMT, you should be able to get information from the High School.

Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes – Youth Section

In 2014 almost 190 young people, aged 16 – 25 years old from across the diocese, travelled on the diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes.

It was a life changing experience for many for many of them.  it was a week of hard work, but it was an uplifting week of working with sick and disable people and many adult helpers.

Every year the Pilgrimage to Lourdes looks for young people to travel , so that we can provide assistance and support for our sick, elderly and inform pilgrims who need some help getting around Lourdes.

if you think you would like to give a hand, or would like more information, we hope the information below will be if some use….
