The young people at Focus (for school years 10-13 that meets every Friday @ St Joseph's, 7-9pm) have set the agenda for this term. We asked them to share their burning questions about life or faith. We have then been able to categorise them into session titles. Pope Francis' new documentary where he talks to 10 young people from across the globe with their own questions are helping us in our conversations too. We really do have wonderfully engaged young people in this parish!
Over 80 of us, over three sessions (Tuesday morning, Tuesday evening on Zoom and Wednesday evening) we have been exploring how we can build a greater sense of belonging in our parishes, inspired by our Celtic heritage. If you'd like to find out more visit www.cpg.church/belongbelieve
HCPT Group 2 sends heartfelt thanks to all those who have supported us through prayer and fundraising to take three children to Lourdes this Easter. Our pilgrimage, or “holiday with Mary”, has been blessed with sunshine, joy and sharing in God's love.

This year we offered the Way of the Cross for families across all four churches in the parish. Around 70 families joined us for Families Way of the Cross at St Joseph's. It was led and acted out by some of our wonderful young people (aged 10-17) from our three youth groups, Fearless, Fusion and Focus. Children are given a stations sheet that they complete as they travel around the live stations. We then all enjoyed some hot cross buns afterwards.
