- Huge week for the youth ministry team. We visit Allen Hall on Tuesday to discuss the role hopefully to be fulfilled by a group at seminarians at World Youth Day. On Wednesday we attend the WYD UK Pilgrimage Leaders Meeting - it will be wonderful to get a better understanding of how other Dioceses are approaching the event. Also on Wednesday (evening) we will welcome youth workers from across the diocese for a beer and some food - it will be lovely to catch up with this hardworking group. On Friday we are blessed to have the opportunity to visit Gumley School and to have the opportunity to lead a session with some of their young people. News on the following week to follow and save it to say that it's getting busier and busier as we head towards Christmas !!
- What is needed right now is a boost of energy - four masses completed here in Edmonton with the Noon Mass on the horizon - a huge number of wonderful people expressing interest in World Youth Day 2016 is a real joy. A latte would be a great shout if anyone could bring one over !! #Krakow2016
To baptise means to immerse. In his baptism, Jesus descended into the sinful history of all mankind. By doing so he established a sign. In order to redeem us from our sins, he would one day be submerged in death but, through his Father’s power, reawakened to life.
