Day of support, resources and prayer for youth leaders

Those who lead youth groups in our Archdiocese are being encouraged to a special day of support and prayer.

The Youth Leaders’ Day takes place on Saturday 14 March at the Gillis Centre, Edinburgh, from 11-3pm.

Fr Jamie McMorrin, chair of the diocesan Youth Initiative which has organised the event, said: "Those who volunteer with our young people in the Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh do a tremendous job.

“This free event is about bringing them together to share their skills and experience. We want to equip them with resources, info and encouragement and listen to how the Archdiocese can support them.”

The day features Mairi-Claire McGeady who works for the youth office of the Archdiocese of Glasgow and pioneers the LifeTeen programme in parishes. Also speaking will be Siobhan Fee of St Catherine's Parish, Edinburgh, who works for Alpha UK.

Fr Jamie added: “We have two fantastic speakers and I'm looking forward to bringing together those who inspire our young people to draw closer to Christ and His Church."
