“So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter.” 2 Thessalonians 2:15
We believe that once we have established a relationship with Christ, it is important to plant our personal experiences within the rich ground of the Bible, Church and Sacraments. We believe that in coming to know and experience these things with our fellow young Catholics, we can all grow phenomenally in our spiritual maturity. To support this stage of spiritual development we have crafted the Resonate evening.
What is Resonate?
Resonate is Westminster Youth Ministry’s primary event for young adult Catholics, aged 18-35, looking to explore and learn more about their faith.
The focus of the evening is community and faith exploration. The evening begins with a shared meal, giving a great opportunity to meet new people or catch up with old friends.
Our evenings are based around ‘Exploring the Art of Catholic Living’ and how we live our lives as distinctive Christians. Each Resonate will include a short talk and time of discussion, prayer and praise.
When and where is Resonate?
Resonate takes place at Vaughan House (down the road from Westminster Cathedral) and occurs quarterly throughout the year. Information about upcoming Resonate evenings can be found on our Events page.
Why ground ourselves in the Bible, Church and Sacraments?
The beauty of these three sources is that they provide objective, Catholic truths that can enrich our faith journey in time-tested ways. The divinely inspired wisdom we find here is a treasure trove of spiritual practices and applications that help us to grow in virtue and knowledge of God. There are no greater examples of this than the saints. Their lives witness the success of this manner of spiritual growth over any other.
Why do this with others?
The beauty of Catholicism is that it is both a personal and communal faith. We are called into a personal relationship with Jesus, but this drives us to have a responsibility and need to give and receive support from our sisters and brothers in Christ. When Jesus sent out the disciples on mission, he did so in groups of two. He did this so that they might support one another in their joys and challenges. It is our hope that Resonate can be that opportunity for support and care within the wider Catholic community outside your parish.
