Comment Email Print
 
Following a successful gathering last year of a thousand adults engaged in Youth Ministry in England and Wales, CYMFed - the Catholic Youth Ministry Federation - will be holding its second National Congress on Saturday 12 March in London.

The theme is 'Called to a Noble Adventure - A Vision for Youth Ministry'. Keynote Speakers are Reverend J-Glenn Murray, SJ, Michelle Moran and David Wells.

Fr Murray is a parochial vicar in the Archdiocese of Washington, DC. He has been a member of the Maryland Province of Jesuits since 1968; having been ordained  in June 1979. He lectures widely in the areas of Liturgy and Culture, as well as conducting parish missions and priests' retreats.

Michelle Moran is currently Chair of the National Service Committee for Catholic Charismatic Renewal in England and Wales and President of the International Catholic Charismatic Renewal Services, the International Council for renewal in Rome. In 2007 she was appointed by Pope Benedict XVI to be a member of the Pontifical Council of the Laity. One of Michelle's desires is to see the next generation of young leaders in Catholic Charismatic Renewal trained and equipped for ministry and leadership.

David Wells is Director of Formation for the RC Diocese of Plymouth where he is responsible for adult education and training. He has taught extensively in the secondary and higher education sectors. A storyteller and raconteur, David has spoken at over 300 conferences worldwide, including TV appearances in Canada and the USA. In the last ten years his main focus with schools has been to help staff enjoy and aspire to a greater sense of their own vocation and dignity. He is great advocate for Youth Ministry. David is married to Ali and they have three children.

Music at the Congress is by contemporary Catholic musicians CJM. At the heart of their music and mission is a commitment to resourcing pastoral musicians, liturgical ministers, worship leaders, teachers and catechists; engaging the skills of young people and to serve the Church through the ministry of music and liturgy. Those present will represent work and ministry with over 100,000 young people per year, committed to a vision of vibrant Youth Ministry in the Church in England and Wales.

The Congress is being held at The Friends Meeting House, Euston, London. Tickets are available at £14 each via CYMFed's website  http://www.cymfed.org
