    Journey through Lent with Missio – Secondary age

    Missio’s resources for Lent 2019 include reflections that explore key words and concepts from the season, linking them with themes and actions that young people in the Secondary school age range can readily engage with and respond to. The three reflections have leaders’ notes and a set of PowerPoint slides, and feature the story of a young person supported by Missio. Each reflection can be delivered within 10 minutes – with or without the slides.

    There is also a simple and accessible Stations of the Cross resource, which encourages young people to reflect on the lessons communicated through Jesus’ journey to the cross and apply them to contemporary issues. The resource is presented as a PowerPoint with leaders’ notes incorporated that suggest alternative ways to use the Stations.

    Cardinal’s address to young Catholics for National Youth Sunday

     

    In the lead-up to National Youth Sunday on the Feast of Christ the King, 24 November, Cardinal Vincent Nichols has sent a video message encouraging young people to feel a part of the Church, reminding them of their significance, and urging them to use their unique and valuable skills to be “digital disciples”, taking the Christian message into the modern world.

    This year, preparations for National Youth Sunday have been led by the Catholic Youth Ministry Federation, (CYMFed), with youth ministers creating resources for use by other youth ministers, with the theme of “Significance”.
