On Saturday 11th March a group from Bellerive made the long journey to London for the CYMFED Flame Youth Conference, to join Gumley House students and the fcJ Sisters at the SSE Arena, Wembley. We had a fantastic day and even the 6am start did not dampen our enthusiasm.
We arrived at Wembley to be part of 10,000 young people singing, worshipping and celebrating their Catholic Faith, showing that the Church for young people is well and truly alive. The atmosphere in the stadium was amazing and Bellerive students were eager to hear Matt Redman play, as we have been listening to his music in the chapel for weeks on our ‘Flame Fridays’. Cardinal Bo from Myanmar spoke at the conference and definitely inspired our young people to have hope and make a difference in the world.
We returned to Liverpool at midnight, all very tired but still smiling, a shining example of fcJ Companionship! Our young people bring hope for the future of the Church and it was a privilege to spend the day with them.
