After eating a packed lunch, there was a "get to know' games and a quiz on WYD and Panama hosted by Clive Sheridan and Joe Perna, both part of the Ignite Lite Team.
Then youth director Hamish MacQueen gave a presentation of all the information we know so far. The day ended with Mass celebrated by the legend that is Fr. Michael Johnstone ' he is known as a legend because he has been to WYD in 1991, 2000, 2003, 2008, 2011, 2013, 2016 ' eight times!
Bishop Alan was unable to be with us but was keen to pass on a message to the group that he was very much behind them and looked forward to being with them in Panama.
