Youth Pilgrimage 2018

Tim Feak, under 25s officer reflects on this year’s Youth Pilgrimage:

15 Young People from all around our Diocese walked up mountains, through moor lands and farm land, across cliff tops and along beaches to complete this expedition.  Walking on average 10 miles a day through genuinely tough terrain the group supported, encouraged and dug deep within themselves each day.

We stopped daily for prayer and reflections and visited several special Pilgrim Churches.  Sadly, the weather was not good enough for us to get to Bardsey Island but the week culminated with a really moving and special Eucharist in Aberdaron.

It is important that we don’t underestimate the achievement of these young people.  What they achieved was significant.   It was a privilege to watch them grow in Faith, Community and to see the overwhelming sense of self esteem and achievement they felt at the end.

I hope this video gives you some idea of what we did!
