Archbishop Cushley writes……During the three Fridays of Advent this year, I would like to start an initiative in the Archdiocese which aims to engage the young people entrusted to our care and to bring them into a closer relationship with the Lord. Inspired by St John Paul II’s vision for World Youth Day, this new initiative is based on relationships, namely, for all of us as pastors to get to know our young people by helping them get to know other young Catholics, which eventually should lead to a deepened and sustained relationship with Christ. I would like, therefore, to ask you ideally to bring, not send, some of your young people, aged 16-29, to the Cathedral each Friday in Advent (8, 15 and 22 December) at 7pm for a period of catechesis prepared and delivered by me, followed by a short time of prayer, and a period of socialising afterwards in the hall. I would hope that you would draw attention to this in your parish, your newsletter and your internet presence in the run up to these events, and encourage your young people to go, even if you cannot go yourself. If any of our young parishioners 16-29 would like to take up this invitation then please contact Fr John asap.
