Christ the King Youth Day took place this year at St James the Great Catholic Church, Petts Wood.
Young people came from all over Bromley Deanery to join the Southwark Catholic Youth Team for an exciting and engaging range of activities to commemorate the end of Pope Francis’ Year of Mercy.
The day was made up of acting, discussion, music and artwork, all centred around the central theme of God’s unfailing love, mercy and forgiveness:
We all enjoyed a fantastic lunch of hot dogs and pizza, organised by the team from St James:
And the day finished with a Youth Mass at 6pm, celebrated by Fr David Camilleri and the parishioners of St James:
Feedback from some of the young people who attended Christ the King Youth Day:
It was fun especially going in a group and doing activities
I enjoyed the activities and all the nice people that helped. In my opinion they should do it every year.
I think it was good because the games were fun, you learn things while interacting with others, the food was good.
Improvement – Lunch earlier!
I enjoyed the day
Christ the King day was very enjoyable and fun and the leaders connected well with us.
It was really enjoyable, not expecting activities for 7 hours. Very friendly adults.
I enjoyed the day very much. There was not much to improve.
To all the young people who attended on Saturday 19th and the team from Southwark Catholic Youth Service who came together to make this faith-filled day such a success.
To Fr David Camilleri and the parishioners from St James the Great for kindly agreeing to host this annual CYM Youth Day – many thanks in particular to Suzanne Horner and Clare Wakefield who organised and prepared the excellent lunch and refreshments.
To the CYM course members who attended and helped out throughout the day – your continued support and assistance is invaluable and very much appreciated.
