Flame is an event for every young person, wherever they are starting from, to help them deeply discover and rediscover Jesus Christ as their brother, friend and saviour, full of joy and mercy. It is an event for young people who are well connected to the church, and for those who think the Church has nothing to say to them.
The YCW sits as a member on the organising body, CYMFed (Catholic Youth Ministry Federation), and has attended each year with a large contingent of young leaders.
This year, we are bringing along 100 from across England and Wales, who will be participating in liturgies, enjoy music and guest speakers but also the opportunity to meet other young people. Following the day we will aim to get some feedback from our YCW leaders and share this on our website.
In the words of Pope Francis: “Faith is a flame that grows stronger the more it is shared and passed on.”
