The Catholic Youth Ministry Federation (CYMFed) Flame 2017, a gathering and celebration for young people, was held at Wembley SSE Arena on Saturday 11 March, 2017.
The theme for Flame 2017 was “10,000 Reasons”, the title of a song by Matt Redman, who performed at the event. Fr. Dermott Donnelly addressed the 10,000 young people in the arena, including many young pilgrims from our Diocese.

One Diocese, 18 Partnerships, Unlimited Potential
A ‘Great cloud of witnesses’ from across the Diocese gathered at the Lancastrian Suite in Gateshead and Carmel College in Darlington to hear the decisions made by Bishop Séamus following the residential Diocesan Board meeting in January.
They heard how the 150 parishes in the diocese are now gathered into 18 partnerships. The message from Bishop Séamus states that,
"A partnership is a group of parishes agreeing to work together, to share resources, both human and material, to become stronger and better equipped for furthering the Kingdom of God".
Lent Resources 2017
Our Lent resources are now available.
The theme is 'To be a Pilgrim: In the Footsteps of Jesus' with each week of Lent taking us to a different geographical location that Jesus visited with thoughts from the Gospel to help us reflect on our own life-journey. There are group-leaders’ guidelines and ideas for prayer stations, but also lots for people to use individually.
Access the materials now.
