Young People

National Youth Sunday 2014

On the feast of Christ the King - this year on Sunday 23 November - the Catholic Church in England and Wales makes young people our particular focus as a sign of how much we value them. The theme for this year, ‘How happy are you?’ knocks on the door of our heart and challenges us to look at what really brings happiness. The videos and downloads here are designed to offer adaptable material for those working with young people not only for National Youth Sunday but throughout the whole of the ‘youth ministry year’.
