Lent 2021 saw the Cornerstone Youth Ministry team launch their online Lenten retreat for young people to explore faith. It was for Young People aged 15-35 years old which ran every Thursday during Lent.
Each meeting was an informal hour long gathering via Zoom; which was made up of Taizé songs, prayer, chats in small groups and guest speakers.
Topics that were explored were – What is it to have faith? Who is God? Does my life have meaning?
The Cornerstone Youth Ministry team were very fortunate to have Deacon John Nestor lead a Lenten Prayer Service on the Sunday before Easter which was opened up to people within the Diocese. On the final night, the young people had Expedition of the Blessed Sacrament and meditation lead by Fr John & Fr Joe from the Macroom Parish. Bishop Crean also joined the young people on zoom on the final night.
We continue to invite the young people of Cloyne Diocese and beyond to share with us on their faith journey. If you would like to get involved please contact: Bernadette, Youth Ministry on 086 8031126, Rita 087-4687866, Deacon Brian 086-8349540
