Last weekend, 5th-7th February, the annual weekend away for youth leaders in the United Dioceses of Cork, Cloyne and Ross took place in the Blarney Golf Resort. Attended by leaders from all over the Diocese and visitors from other Dioceses, it was led by Jonny Phenix, Diocesan Youth Officer from Clogher Diocese. Jonny took the theme ` Abide` and led participants through the passage in John 15 in which Jesus encourages his followers to Abide in Him and thus bear much fruit in His name. The weekend is also an opportunity to plan events for the year ahead, and to learn about what is happening in local parishes and in the schools team.
There was much interest in the Church of Ireland Youth Department’s planned trip to Cambodia in August to work with a Tearfund partner. There will also be a visit from the Romanian team again and a visit to Germany.
