Youth Ministry

Welcome to the Diocesan Youth Service!


The East Anglia Diocesan Youth Service exists to help young people in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to connect with Jesus Christ and his Catholic Church. We carry out this mission through the running of various events across East Anglia, by providing support to parishes and schools and also through the Ignite Team, which visits schools and churches to run retreats, activities and workshops. Please select an option from the sidebar (see below on mobile devices) to find out more about what we do for young people in our Diocese and for information about upcoming events.
