Cork Diocesan Youth Council celebrates 20 Years

This year the Cork Diocesan Youth Council are celebrating their 20th Anniversary. On Saturday the 26th August Bishop Colton and Mrs Colton invited the Youth Council and some of the young leaders to their home for a BBQ to mark the occasion.

Hilda Connolly, Diocesan Youth Officer, writes:

Over the years, CDYC have seen many changes and shift in trends, but it has kept up with the needs of the young people and has successfully kept running events to suit everyone. With just three original council members, The President – Bishop Colton, Chairperson – Judy Peters, Elected Lay Member – Peter Coughlan, withstanding the test of time.

It is a huge achievement to have kept the “show on the road” and there is a lot of appreciation from parents and young people from around the diocese, which have benefitted and found the events a great help in the past and in the present day. Well done to all the council members throughout the years on your commitment and enthusiasm with the young people of Cork, Cloyne and Ross.

And to make the evening even more special, it was not just a 20th Anniversary, but one of the young leaders also turned 18 that day, which led to the necessity of a cake for both!

Thank you to Bishop Colton and Susan for the wonderful spread and hospitality. It was a very enjoyable night.
