The Christmas Octave!
Christmas isn’t just one day! Let’s celebrate the eight days of the Christmastide!
Here’s a little booklet outlining the different days of the octave, some prayers, reflections and even a Christmas craft that can help you to upcycle all your Christmas cards!
Gap Year Opportunities
Have you ever considered taking a gap year? There are plenty of amazing opportunities for you to learn new skills, develop your gifts, live in community, meet people from all over the world, work with young people from across the country and grow in your faith by volunteering in a Catholic Retreat Centre or Organisation!
Residential Retreat Centres
Other Gap Year Opportunities
During Advent 2020 we invite you to spend time Preparing the Way for the birth of Christ with the Gospel readings and reflections for each day.
We would like to thank our 27 contributors who are from all over the Diocese of Leeds. These include members of the youth leadership team, The Twelve, as well as clergy, young people and adults from parishes and schools.
In these resources you will find the Gospel passage for each day of Advent and a short reflection on it. These resources can be used in personal reflection, collective worship, as part of Lectio Divina and much more!
They will also be shared on all of our social media platforms.
