Flame 2 Catholic Congress

Flame_2_Image_1.jpgOn Saturday March 7th 2015, a group from Salesian School Chertsey travelled to the SSE Wembley Arena for the second national Catholic Youth Congress.

The title "Flame 2" is derived from a quotation of St. Paul viz. "I remind you to fan into a flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands." (2 Timothy 1:6). The event was sponsored by the Salesians of Don Bosco, St. Mary's Catholic University, the Catenians and the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart. Over 7500 young people gathered to listen to inspirational speakers, including Cardinal Tagle, Archbishop of Manila; Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster; Dom Timothy Radcliffe OP, Baroness Hollins, David Wells and others.

Prayer time included liturgical dance and live music from double-grammy award winning Christian musician Matt Redman. The day concluded with silent Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.
