The First week of February a group of young people from the parish who completed the Youth Alpha course, attended a meeting in Corrymeela with others from across the Diocese. The course was part of the parish’s JPII award programme.
18 young people from the parish successfully completed the JPII award scheme last year. At the annual awards Mass in St Mary’s Chapel Lane, Belfast, Brenda Gallagher the co-ordinator of the Youth Alpha Course and the JOHN PAUL II award scheme in our parish, received a medal in recognition for being the most dedicated leader in the Diocese. Brenda said she was ‘surprised but delighted and honoured by the award’.
Congratulations to all the candidates.
