Youth Group & Youth Weeks

St Edward's has had an active youth group since 2008, meeting every 2 weeks

Meetings are on a Saturday evening, in the dining room at the back of church hall, 6.30-8pm 
We start with 40 minutes of interactive catechesis, say a decade of the rosary or some other form of prayer in the church, and then have half hour of social time.  The catechesis is usually led by our parish priest 

Dates of upcoming meeting are listed in our parish newsletter which can be seen here

Faith Summer Youth Weeks

Since 2007 a good number of the youth of our parish have enjoyed attending the Faith Youth weeks, which we strongly recommend!  These are two residential weeks for young Catholics, organised by the Faith Movementthe Faith Summer Break for those aged 11-15, and the Faith Summer Session for those 16 and older.  The weeks combine lots of fun activity, social entertainment, prayer, and solid doctrinal input.  They are competently and successfully run and offer a valuable formative experience.  Each summer an adult parishioner and our parish priest have accompanied those going to the younger age week and our parish priest has likewise accompanied those going to the older age week.  Dates of the next sessions can be seen here

Some YouTube clips we have used in the youth group can be found on our Transformed in Christ page
