BOOKING DEADLINE EXTENDED - please book as soon as possible!


The fifth Diocesan Festival takes place on Saturday 24 – Sunday 25 June 2017 at the Emmaus Youth Village in Consett.

This year’s theme is ‘Changing Hearts: The Challenge of Discipleship’. Clare Dixon will speak about the life of Oscar Romero, whose centenary we celebrate this year. RISE Theatre will present a drama about this martyr of our own times. There will be talks from David Wells and Sr Judith Russi. It includes prayer, liturgy, reflection, discussion and music. It is an opportunity for our whole Diocesan family to come together to celebrate and to be encouraged in our faith offering inspiring speakers for adults as well as activities for young people and children.

You are warmly invited to come and experience the festival as a parish group, as a family or as individuals. Everyone is welcome. Booking forms are now available either from the back of church or can be downloaded below.
