Connor Youth Council invites young people from across Connor Diocese to attend the third annual diocesan ‘Take the Castle’ weekend in Castlewellan from September 2-4.

The weekend has provided a massive opportunity for all young people across Connor to travel with others from their local parish and connect with other young people in an action-packed weekend. The weekend will be back in the beautiful Castlewellan Castle for some incredible food, adventurous activities and challenging talks.

The Youth Council is looking forward to providing the chance for young people to grow in their faith alongside leaders from their own parishes. The cost of the weekend is £50 and includes everything once groups arrive at Castlewellan.

Christina Baillie, Diocesan Youth Officer, said: “I would love to see groups from all over Connor joining together and hearing more of God’s character. The diocesan weekend is a real opportunity for developing community and so many young people have talked to me about the positive impact it has had on their faith and helping them to feel part of the wider church.

“I would love to see groups coming for the first time and groups of all sizes will be incredibly welcome.”
