Youth Friday Diocesan Celebration

Bishop Seamus has invited all diocesan schools to a celebration at St Mary's Cathedral from 1.30pm till 2.30pm on Wednesday 4 February. This will be a wonderful opportunity for the Youth Ministry Team to thank schools for their continued involvement and for schools to show their support of youth ministry in our diocese.
Each school is invited to bring two pupils with up to two accompanying adults. Primary schools are asked to bring pupils from year five or six, secondary schools from year seven or eight, and first and infant schools, pupils from their upper age range.
