The Feast of Christ the King is the last Sunday of the Church’s Year and next week we begin our preparation for Christmas with the shortest Advent possible, since Christmas falls on a Monday.

Work in the church: I know it all seems to have been painfully slow, but we are confident that in the first week of Advent we will be rid of the scaffolding and have the Lady Chapel back in good time for Christmas. There will be some more work in the New Year, but that should be manageable from smaller towers.

Today is Youth Sunday. There will be a retiring collection after all Masses today for Animate (the Archdiocesan Youth Ministry). Gift aid envelopes available in the porch.

The theme for this year's Youth Sunday is 'Something to say'

Something to Say?

In the lead up to the Synod on Youth, Faith and Vocational Discernment to be held next year, Pope Francis 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. It is a chance for those in positions of influence to take advantage of the opportunity provided by this synod, 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 the Church in general. By making the most of this conversation it will help the Church become better at accompanying young people in their vocational discernment. 

There is a website dedicated to the upcoming synod which you can find  at http://youth.synod2018.va/content/synod2018/en.html . On that website there is a youth Survey - which will close on the 30th Novemeber. If you are between the ages of 16 and 29 you are invited to complete the survey. Click here to access it. (Please not the drop down menu which allows you to select the correct language for you).
