YCW Welcomes Pope Benedict to the UK!

News of MovementsPosted by Emma Stradling Thu, September 16, 2010 21:55:29
The YCW is delighted to welcome the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI to our country as he begins today the first ever state visit of a pontiff to the UK.

Representatives of our movement from across England and Wales will be gathering in London this weekend to attend the papal Mass being celebrated at Westminster Cathedral and the Vigil of Prayer at Hyde Park.

Those attending are full of anticipation and excitement as they look forward to being in the presence of the Holy Father and listening to his message.

Emma Stradling, YCW National President, said of the visit, ‘We hope that through the message that the Pope brings, young people across the country may come to realise their true dignity and worth and their valued place within the Church’.

The papal visit comes as the new YCW European campaign, ‘Young People Stand up for Dignity’ begins to build momentum. Emma continued, ‘In many of his writings, Pope Benedict has stressed the importance of human dignity. This, therefore, should give the isolated young people of our society the courage to stand up and ensure that their voices are heard’.

Chris Pinchbeck, a member of a local group in Filey, will have the honour representing all of the YCW’s from across the UK as he takes up a very special position on the steps of Westminster Cathedral to welcome the Pope as he leaves the cathedral, ready to greet the crowds of young people assembled in piazza. We wish all of those who are attending the papal events a blessed and fruitful experience.

The full report of the YCW’s involvement in the papal visit will follow shortly...
