The Celebrate Catholic Conference is returning to the Archdiocese of Cardiff on the 3rd and 4th May and this is an event you will want to attend!
Celebrate conferences have been running as week-long family holiday events for 20 years down in Devon. 1500 people go each year and it’s a sell-out. Weekend events were launched 6 years ago and there are 11 running this year all over the country, including Cardiff.
Celebrate is a conference for Catholics of all ages, half of those who attend are under 25 and children have their own groups and leaders. It is approved by the Diocese of Westminster and often attended by the local Bishop, in fact our Archbishop writes in the current Celebrate magazine.
I have been attending with my family for a number of years, so have other members of Belmont Abbey Parish in Hereford. It always provides outstanding teaching, as well as opportunities to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation, spend time in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and to participate in the Mass. We leave feeling renewed and energised spiritually and so do our children.
It is the Celebrate Conference that has changed me from an individual who was very private in my faith to a person who is happy to take any opportunity to share it with others. It has led me into deeper prayer, a much greater appreciation of the scriptures, a love of reading spiritual books by among others Benedictines, Jesuits, Dominicans and lay people such as Dr Scott Hahn. It even inspired me to study for a Masters’ Degree in theology, not bad for someone who barely scraped through 4 ‘O’ Levels at 16 and failed RE!
I want you to have the opportunity to experience what I and my family have experienced, to come to a deeper knowledge and love of Jesus Christ. It is through Him and Him alone that we continue the mission of the Church and ultimately reach eternal life.
