Reminder - Embrace Liverpool 2017

Embrace, now in its third year, is an exciting one-day conference for young Catholics in the heart of Liverpool with Praise & Worship, Mass, Adoration, great talks and fantastic workshops This year's conference will take place on Saturday 25th November 2017 at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral between 9:30am – 6pm. It is a day to celebrate the faith of young people. It is aimed at 14-25 year olds but open to all ages. We have arranged for a coach to take a group of young people from Salford Cathedral. The coach and a Diocese of Salford Youth hooded sweatshirt will cost £15. If you are interested in joining the youth team on this trip email Tracey on  Visit for more info.


The National Eucharistic Congress will cover three days: Friday-Sunday 7th-9th September 2018. Sunday 9th September will be an open day for all who wish to come to Liverpool for the last day of the Congress. There will be a procession of the Blessed Sacrament through the streets. Churches in Liverpool will be Available for Holy Mass and other hospitality.

For the events on the other two days of the Congress prior booking is required. The Congress begins on Friday 7th September 2018 when a number of presentations will be offered to explore the Congress theme further. They will be of interest particularly to those involved in catechesis and formation. We would need to know by the 31st October 2017 if any wishes to take a place. Please
