Cardinal backs Bright Lights Festival

posted on 28 April 2004
'I am pleased that I have had the opportunity to meet monthly with many young adults of our diocese over the past year as part of the Renewal process. I am always greatly impressed by their enthusiasm and love of the faith. Our young adults are both the hope for the Church of tomorrow and a valued part of the Church of today. They have a vital role to play in the renewal of every parish and of the diocese at large.

Our Annual Diocesan Young Adult's Festival, Bright Lights, is a wonderful occasion to enable Young Adults to be renewed and re-energised in their faith. This year's weekend long festival has the theme of 'The Return of the King' and will provide opportunities, through prayer, liturgy, talks, workshops, music and socialising for our Young Adults to experience a real intimacy with Christ, our King. This renewal, through contact with Christ and other Young Adults of like mind will create the desire to live their faith more fully in their lives, and to return with great enthusiasm to their parishes. I sincerely encourage each parish to enable a group of Young Adults, 16-30, to attend Bright Lights this Summer at London Colney (July 9th-11th). I pray for its success and that each young person may welcome the return of the one true King into their lives'.
