Forming and serving Youth Ministry in England and Wales

CYMFed National Symbol for Youth Ministry – Tour of England and Wales 2011

The symbol-rich artwork of the Candle Stand tells the story of God’s infinite love. Designed by a young creative artist, Xavier Javier – Hexham & Newcastle Youth Ministry Team, it has been adopted as the National Symbol for Catholic Youth Ministry in England and Wales, and was blessed by Pope Benedict during his visit to the UK last year. We hope that it will also serve as a beautiful “catechesis in miniature” inspiring reflection and prayer as each dimension of the artwork is considered.

Moving on from Congress 2011, during the rest of this year the Symbol will be visiting every diocese in England and Wales to celebrate our “noble adventure” in Youth Ministry. It will be available to Organisations, Movements and Religious Orders who have a specific purpose to work with young people in each of the dioceses.
