THE FRIDAY THING
In 2016, young adults from the parish started going into Cardinal Newman Catholic School to start “The Friday Thing” – meeting with students after school on Fridays, to get fish ‘n chips, talk together and pray together – either in Taizé style with meditative songs and candles, ‘encounter’ style with upbeat praise and worship music, or watching a movie and talking about how it may relate to our own lives. It is a great opportunity to speak about God and share his goodness to us.
Every term, Catholic secondary schools from across the deanery come together for an evening of Taizé style prayer on a Friday evening. They are hosted at a different schools and all are welcome to attend. For further details see the Diocesan youth service website.
Our parish has a close link with a diocesan wide programme of weekends away for teenagers at Worth Abbey, a Benedictine Monastery only 30 minutes away. Happening regularly throughout the year these joy filled weekends provide teenagers with an opportunity to come to know Jesus Christ, build faith filled friendships and begin to walk the path of discipleship.
