Our Confirmation Group had the great opportunity to attend Flame 2019 at Wembley on 2nd March. Flame is the biggest-ever Catholic youth event in England and Wales and brings together over 9,000 young Catholics.
The theme this year is: #Significance. Through drama, song and worship the Gospel scene of the road to Emmaus was brought to life to show what it means for our lives. Christ accompanied those down-trodden, depressed men who thought they had lost everything, especially He whom they loved so much. He walked with them on the way and shared their experience. As he spoke, their eyes were opened and they understood the significance of all that had happened. This led to them joyfully returning to that which they had been running away from, and the adventure of Christian living began.
