Mass for Young Adults
posted on 09 June 2003
Speaking following yesterday’s mass for the young people of Westminster Diocese, the Archbishop of Westminster, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, said:
' I was delighted that 400 young people from across Westminster Diocese were able to join me for our celebration mass for the Feast of Pentecost in the Cathedral on Sunday evening.
“ This was the first of a series of masses for young adults that we will be holding and I was honoured to witness the enthusiasm and commitment of the many young people of our Diocese who were able to attend. Together we explored the glory of the Holy Spirit as he descended on the Apostles that day and called for the same inspiration to fill us and guide us in our own daily lives.
“ The service, and our discussions afterwards in Cathedral Hall, showed clearly the different ways these young people are guided by the Holy Spirit. They face the many and diverse challenges of modern society but do so with hope and a confidence that can only come from knowing the Living Christ.
“ The Catholic Church in Westminster Diocese is blessed by the Faith of its young people. May they continue to grow in strength and determination and, with all of us, gain an even deeper understanding of the mysteries of our Faith.”
