Welcome to the Leeds Diocesan Youth Service
“You, dear young people, are not the future but the now of God.”
Pope Francis – World Youth Day Panama 2019
The Diocese of Leeds Youth Service seeks to evangelise, encourage personal relationship with Our Lord, to build character and inspire, to provide opportunities for fellowship, to deliver faith formation, to promote discipleship and to integrate our young people into the life of the Church. We try to do this by running the Faith in Action Award Scheme, supporting Parish youth groups, Lay Chaplains in our schools and holding youth events as well as giving young people in our diocese, the opportunity to get involved faith building events at local, regional, national and international levels.
