A project which I hope will be of interest and support to you in your parish is a Lenten Series called “Quo Vadis – Where is Your Life Going?”. “Quo Vadis?” is a 7-week Lenten Series on Zoom for young adults aged 18 – 35, on Sunday nights from 7 – 8pm. It will feature guest speakers, testimonies, discussion, a chance to make new friends in faith, and a short time of prayer. This lockdown is giving us a unique opportunity to connect with this age range in particular: college students, young parents, young professionals, or even those out of work during Covid times.There are many young adults throughout the diocese who have faith, are regular Mass attenders (before restrictions), and are already involved in parish life. However, often they may be the only one of their peers who practices their faith. “Quo Vadis” is a way of supporting these amazing young adults during lockdown, and helping them make connections, develop friendships and share their faith within their parishes and across the diocese too.
