Mysterium: An Easter Triduum Retreat
The Easter Triduum is the highpoint of the Christian Year. The Mass of the Lord’s Supper, the Solemn liturgy of Good Friday and the Easter Vigil form one liturgical celebration spread across three days. Work and the commitments of life mean that for many people attendance at all three of these celebrations is not always practical. For Easter 2018 the Ignite Youth Mission Team is delighted to be able to offer the Mysterium retreat for those aged 18 - 35. During the retreat we will journey through the Easter Triduum as a community of young adults in the intimate surroundings of Dowry House, Walsingham. The retreat will begin at 3pm on Holy Thursday and conclude with lunch on Easter Sunday. To book your place please click the link here. More details to follow soon…

The East Anglia Diocesan Youth Service provides opportunities for young people to , to grow in their relationship with God and their involvement in the Church.
We aim to encourage, resource and empower the whole Church to walk alongside young people sharing the Gospel message. We are responsible for helping parishes work with their young people, enabling them to engage with the wider Catholic Church.
Our coordinator is available to offer advice, support and resources to parishes and deaneries that are looking to begin or develop its work with young people.
There are many opportunities for young people to get involved in events, projects, pilgrimages and individual sessions that we run throughout the year.
We also run training events for parishes and those involved as Confirmation catechists or youth group leaders.
