The Bible Society’s new animated video takes Jairus’s daughter and the boy with the five loaves and two fishes on a journey where they discover who Jesus really is.
The video is on YouTube, and you can download it free from the Bible Society website, in English or Welsh. There is also a script and all-age service guide to enable you to explore the life, death and resurrection of Jesus and bring Three Friends and the Miracle Man to life at your church.
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.
This year’s Lent resources from Mission Together include a Stations of the Cross liturgical resource for the first time. Read more

On the Feast of Christ the King, National Youth Sunday, the Synod Fruits project launches its first fundraiser to help bring Pope Francis’s message from Christus Vivit to life in exhibitions offered to Cathedrals around the country.
The team at Synod Fruits hope funds raised will enable them to exhibit portraits of twelve young saints, paired with extracts from Christus Vivit, in Cathedrals and city centre churches around the country in a bid to bring the richness of Pope Francis’s message to more people. The portraits were created by young Catholic artist John Paul de Quay.
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”. The Cardinal’s message was filmed as one of a range of materials now available on the new website for use in four broad settings: parishes, schools, families and by individuals.
