Youth Ministry

This group allows people between the ages of 18 – 35 to come together in a relaxed and informal setting to reflect on their faith through prayer, scripture and exploration of the teachings of the Church. It is also a perfect opportunity to meet and socialise with other young Catholics at the regular social evenings held by the group.

This group is for those aged between 11 – 17 and meets twice a month in the Cathedral Scout Hut.  The group aims to encourage young people to grow deeper in their faith through prayer, formation discussions and social events.

For more information for both groups, please see the newsletter or contact the Parish Office on 01604 714556 or

The next World Youth Day is being hosted by Panama City in January 2019. This pilgrimage is open to all those aged 18 – 30 years. Unfortunately it is happening during term time and thus rules out students and teachers. Ideally we would like to welcome one young person from each pastoral area. We are working with the Archdiocese of Birmingham on this project. Contact or visit
