A young person's view of the Redemptorist Youth Group...

 

Thank you Damian Wilde for being so kind and sharing this.

A friend who attended the group in Liverpool recommended I attended the group in Birmingham as I lived close-by, so I thought I would see what it was like.  Having only lived in the area for a few years, I did not know many people in Catholic circles.  I attended mass, but I only knew a few people in my parish.  All the people I knew through church and going to Lourdes were from the Archdiocese where I grew up in Liverpool.  It was due to this I wanted to extend my network and spend some reflective prayer time with fellow Catholics in the area.

 

 

 

 

RYM Young Adult Group at Bishop Eton...

 

rymheader

When I first heard about the RYM Young Adult Group at Bishop Eton I was a little apprehensive. Unfortunately friends of mine had been to Young Catholic Adult groups and had been disappointed. They usually fell into one of two categories: too spiritless and nothing ‘Catholic’ about them, or rigid and unaccommodating to anyone who doesn’t share the same views as the leader of the group!

 

I didn’t know what to expect, whether everyone would have the same outlook and approach to religion that I had, and whether the style of worship and activities would be what I’d have chosen. I decided to leave my prejudices at the door and a year and a half later, I’m so glad I did. The group was not what I expected, and not how I would have done things – it was so much better! When I opened my mind to the possibility that this might just be a group of normal people doing something a bit different to what young people might normally do, I found a new spiritual home among a new group of fellow Catholics whom I am now proud to call my friends.

Reflection on a Youth Retreat...

 

 

kinnoull2

 

 

Picture an ancient monastery perched on a verdant hill. Picture a chapel, with diamond-patterned sunlight slanting onto its whitewashed walls. Picture evergreen-shaded gardens, with quiet wandering paths and a stream bubbling through a grotto. Now picture a group of young adults, screaming at a flipchart pad in a game of Catholic Pictionary. Yes, you guessed it – the annual retreat to St Mary’s, Kinnoull. Some of us didn’t survive as far as the evening socials but we have it from reliable sources that matters got a little competitive.

 

 

 

Redemptorist Youth Ministry...

 

The Redemptorist Youth Ministry has been on the move again, this time to the Redemptorist Monastery in Perth, commonly refered to as Kinnoull. A group of young adults (27 from every corner of the country) gathered together to pray, reflect and have fun. Read on to find out somebody's personal experience...

"Having just returned from the Young Adult Retreat in Kinnoull, it is safe to say that it was a retreat that will not be forgotten in a long time, its impact will have a lasting effect on me and my relationship with God. It was a weekend in which I could relax, unwind, reflect, meet new people and take that real time and space for God which is so hard to find in everyday life. It began with a group of us setting off from Liverpool on Thursday morning to begin the trip up North, we had an overnight rest in Glasgow before we headed on up to Kinnoull on Friday morning via some truly beautiful parts of Scotland. Once at the Monastery we were greeted with such warm hospitality, I felt at home straight away. From our first evenings session it was wonderful and humbling to see so many people from all over the country and from different backgrounds coming together united in their faith. Throughout the evening people were enjoying each other’s company and learning more about one another, the evening drew to a close with a time of prayer to help us focus ourselves for the weekend ahead and give thanks for what we had shared so far.

RYM YOUNG ADULT 'ADVENT' RETREAT @HAWKSTONE

 

(by Paul Murphy, Coordinator of Redemptorist Youth Ministry)

 

Just before Christmas a number of the RYM Young Adult Group from Liverpool made our first weekend retreat together to the fantastic Hawkstone Hall Pastoral and Renewal Centre in beautiful rural Shropshire!

The weekend was attended by around 12 committed young adults who regularly attend the group in Bishop Eton every fortnight!

 

The relaxing setting of Hawkstone provided the ideal opportunity for us all to 'retreat' and take time out of the busy-ness of our lives and in the run up towards Christmas! It was a time for us to relax together, reflect on our faith and pray together! A time for God and a time for one another!
