Over thirty youth leaders from the Diocese of Cork, Cloyne and Ross and beyond spent a great weekend in Clonakilty recently for the annual youth leaders training weekend. This event has become one of the high spots in the year, and it is appropriate that is does so in January in order for leaders to be remotivated for the year ahead.
This year’s theme was FAITH WORKS. The main speaker, Amy MCrea from CIYD, led sessions on `How can we make sure we are growing in faith?`; `How can we share that faith with the young people in our youth groups?` and `How can we encourage them to share their faith with others?`
One of the sessions required small working groups to come up with a programme on sharing faith. The resulting ideas will be put together to provide a resource for use by leaders all over the Diocese.
There was plenty of time for fun and one evening everyone took part in a drama session during which groups had to write and perform sketches on Faith , Hope and Love and the Greatest of these is Love.
