A group from St Greg’s went to join 10,000 young people at Wembley Arena for FLAME17, a day of prayer, worship and inspirational talks to help us to grow in faith and service, to respond to the needs of the world.
‘It was an amazing day, to see so many other young people worshipping, to be a part of the atmosphere.’
‘The Music, Drama and talks were all inspiring and I have never had adoration of the Blessed Sacrament with 10,000 people before.’
The Day focussed upon responding to the Refugee crisis, reaching out in solidarity to our brothers and sisters in need. At the front of the stage they had a boat the people caught to come to this country in safety. Cardinal Vincent Nichols blessed the boat and prayed for all those across the world making dangerous journeys to safety.
One student who attended said: ‘I’m definitely going again next year!’
