Youth Gathering in Kinnoull...
Kinnoull, (Perth in Scotland) played host to the most recent London Province Redemptorist Youth and Vocation Ministry (RYVM) gathering from 16-18th March.
Youth from the Redemptorist parishes of St Patrick’s Edinburgh, St Mary’s Clapham and Bishop Eton in Liverpool came together for a weekend of reflection, friendship and celebration.
The theme of the meeting was ‘Make a Difference’ and a range of activities and liturgies filled the weekend. Highlights included ‘Stations of the Cross’ as the group climbed Kinnoull Hill, a prayerful Lenten evening liturgy held in the Church followed by a St Patrick’s Day celebration on the Saturday night. The group, led by Roisin Coll and Fr. Dominic O’Toole C.Ss.R., was delighted that Fr Ed Hone C.Ss.R., was able to join them for the weekend and give so generously of his talents and time.
Here is what sisters Melissa and Jaclyn thought of the weekend:
'The weekend brought us all together as a group and as a Redemptorist youth community. We thoroughly enjoyed the meeting in Kinnoull and it was a great chance to meet new people from other Redemptorist parishes and we became closer with everyone who was there. The activities were really enjoyable and we had great fun too. The only negative about the weekend is that it wasn't long enough! We would love to go back and can't wait for the next RYVM gathering.'
