The theme this year is CALLED based on the Gospel of the day, Matthew 25:34, ‘Come you whom my Father has blessed’. Embrace, now in it’s third year, is an exciting one-day conference for young Catholics in the heart of Liverpool with Praise & Worship, Mass, Adoration, great talks and fantastic workshops. This year’s conference will take place on Saturday 25th November 2017 at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral between 9:30am – 6pm. It is a day to celebrate the faith of young people. It is aimed at 14-25 year olds but open to all ages. We have arranged for a coach to take a group of young people from Salford Cathedral. If you are interested in joining the youth team on this trip email Tracey on .

Young Adults Vocation Group
A new young adults group (18+) has been established to provide young adults with an informal, but structured environment in which to discern, ‘what are you looking for?’ The searchers group has been set up to help young adults to develop their prayer life, learn more about their Faith, reflect on what God is asking of them and to socialise with people of similar ages.
They will meet on the first Thursday of each month (commencing 2nd February 2017) at Katherine House, Singleton Rd, Salford where we begin the evening with a meal at 6.30pm and will conclude at 9pm. If you are thinking of joining or would like more information, please contact: Fr Joe or Lorraine at the following email address: 

Every month there is a special celebration at the Cathedral for young adult Catholics, called “ReIgnite”. It takes the form of Mass on the third Sunday of each month in the Cathedral at 5.30 p.m., at which young Catholics will read and provide music, followed by a social in a nearby pub with a guest speaker. 

Here is another chance just like the Lourdes Pilgrimage and World Youth Day in Poland to experience with other young people our faith as fun, engaging and transformative. Come along for great speakers, brilliant testimonies, guest homilists, our young adults music ministry, hanging out with friends and social time

Please spread the word and make sure our young Catholics know that the invitation is for everyone!

This is an initiative which saw its beginnings in World Youth Day 2005; it is essentially very simple - open our churches as a place of prayer, and invite anyone to come inside. Nightfever evenings take place in Churches throughout the world - many in Germany, but also New York, Dublin, London and now Manchester too!

When :  First Friday of each month
Where : Holy Name Church, Oxford Road, Manchester
Time :   7.30 p.m. - 10.00 p.m.
This is an opportunity for anyone and everyone to visit Church for a peaceful and uplifting atmosphere of music and prayer.

Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes

The diocese is blessed to have been able to take an official "under-16s" group with the annual pilgrimage to Lourdes for the first time this year. The group were very much part of the wider pilgrimage, taking part in all the liturgies, visits and processions, yet having their own identity as a group. It is part of the long tradition that many young people play a large part in assisting the infirm throughout the pilgrimage and especially at the Grotto to Our Lady. More information on the Diocesan website.
