Thursday 14th May - YMT hour of prayer 4pm

Fr Dermott Donnelly , Chair Youth Ministry Trust writes:

This Thursday the Diocese is offering a day of prayer for the sick, their families, the NHS and all key workers. Along with young people from across the diocese, YMT have put together an hour of prayer from 4-5pm. The hour will be hosted by Martin and Emerald Delaney, film, TV and radio personalities who spoke at The Source last year. This prayer time will include some inspirational reflections from national and international speakers, music from Maria and Jason Vare and prayers led by The YMT gap year volunteers.

Durham Martyrs Youth Ministry are featured in the Examen.

We invite you to join the whole Diocese on the Thursday 14th May and the YMT prayer time brought to you virtually from the Emmaus Youth Village at 4pm.
