Cork Diocesan Youth Council Asks Young People To Read Saint Mark’s Gospel Before Advent

CDYC (Cork Diocesan Youth Council) have set up an exciting ‘Advent Challenge’  for the young people in Cork, Cloyne & Ross.

They are asked to follow reading programme that involves reading 2 chapters of the Gospel of Saint Mark each week over the next 8 weeks.

Of course it isn’t just a reading task!  The young people then are asked to write a short 500 word piece on ‘What you have learned from the Gospel of Mark?’  and ‘Why Jesus Matters?

There will be a prize of €50 for the best article followed by €35 for 2nd place and €20 for 3rd place.

A resource book called FUEL, produced by CIYD, can be used in this challenge.

Copies of Fuel can be got form our Diocesan Youth Officer, Hilda Connolly at:

All entries must be returned to Hilda by the 1st December.

For more information, please check out the CDYC Facebook page for a short video by Simon Henry (Church of Ireland Youth Department), explaining the challenge.

Simon Henry   was also the guest speaker in Cape Clear this year and spoke on Jesus Matters!

Get reading and writing – Best of Luck everyone!
