We are blessed in the diocese to have the team at NYMO as the department for youth ministry. Throughout the year they lead their own events for young people assisted by adult volunteers from across the diocese as well as supporting parishes in developing leaders and trying to offer various forms of youth ministry on a local level. Rick regularly works collaboratively with the team at NYMO to support their work across the diocese and in the youth ministry here in Corby. Rick also organises groups from our parishes to attend the NYMO events throughout the year like the ones below.
Lux is a weekend retreat for around 100 young people from around the Diocese and takes place usually on the first weekend of February every year. It is for anyone in secondary school and is definitely a highlight of the year. There are so many different activities throughout the weekend to grow in faith and friendship. The last Lux we took 15 from Corby and hope to take a similar number this year. Check out the the highlights of LUX.GOLD below.
This year's Lux takes place on 3rd-5th Feb and has the theme of LUX.FLAWLESS. Sometimes we can feel like we have to be perfect and that we're not welcome in the Church if we're not perfect. The truth is that Jesus was called out for spending time with people who were the broken, cast out as sinners, rejected by the community, because He truly wants to welcome us as we are and help us become who we were called to be as a disciple.
It is always a great weekend bringing together young Catholics from school year's 7-13 (age 11-18) to explore and celebrate faith in a variety of ways! If you're interested in coming or want to know more then get in touch with Rick our youth minister or go to www.nymo.org/lux
Lifeteen Summer Camp
Lifeteen is an Catholic organisation in America who aim to 'bring teens closer to Christ'. The Archdiocese of Birmingham alongside our own Diocese has taken their format of a Summer Camp to run the 'best week of the year' in the last few years. Working alongside some American friends who come over to lead the main talks and worship there is also so much more: trekking, biking, climbing, survival skills, daily Mass, Reconciliation, Prayer, Discussions, a day at Alton Towers and a mystery day out! It's 5 days at the end of July/beginning of August so speak to Rick you're interested! Check out last year's Camp in the video below!
