A message from Kenelm Youth Trust:
We are working on a few fun initiatives for the following week including some input for the virtual Lourdes pilgrimage on the Wednesday. The diocese will release the programme for this but the Youth Mass will be live streamed from Alton and we will be participating in the concert in the evening with Jo Boyce and Dan Callow.
The following video was created by the team here based on a prayer written by Fr Tim. We hope you love it as much as we do. I would be so grateful if you could share it far and wide!
