With the theme: “Seek First His Kingdom” (Matt 6:33), this year will be the 10th Celebrate weekend in Bristol and the team are very much looking forward to meeting you all – whether you’re new, returning from last year or a seasoned veteran, we’re confident you’ll all find something to refresh you at this year’s Conference.
The conference is suitable for all ages and is open to individuals and families alike – a number of families regularly attend from St Patrick’s, St Anthony’s and St Mary’s, so why not join them.
For younger audiences, activities are split into age appropriate groups that we call streams. These are led by experienced leaders, who will help develop your children’s relationship with the Lord through fun faith based activities – including thought provoking mime from Steve Murray (he’s excellent if you’ve never seen him before!).
Don’t worry if you can’t join the younger members, throughout the weekend there are various speakers, workshops and activities that you can attend. We’re sure you will find these thought provoking and rewarding. Mass is offered twice over the weekend and there’s also adoration and reconciliation.
We hope that the weekend will help you find inspiration and renewal in your faith in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Father John will be recommissioning those Eucharistic Ministers who were unable to attend the earlier sessions, at Saturday Mass on 8th July.
The old tradition of Christian Meditation and Contemplative Prayer is being re-discovered today. Contrary to belief, the focus is not on ourselves, but on God’s mysterious and silent presence within us, giving time and space for it to grow.
If you are interested in joining a group, please contact Camilla (07921 847624 or 01225 891283). The group meets near Marshfield on alternate Mondays at 7.30pm.
Please pick up your copy of “The Church we want to be”, an edited version of the report from the Call to Action Group, working to identify the issues raised from the recent feedback received from parishes in January.
What is it to be a Church for our day and our culture?
What do we need to do to make our imaginings come true?
