FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT
This was the theme of a day hosted by the new St Thomas the Apostle parish, Clyde North, and was a gratifying experience for about 70 young people.
Below is a testimony of one of our parish youth. “Fight the Good Fight Youth Retreat helped me and many others reconnect spiritually with God, through songs, prayers, dramatised acts, personal stories and experiences. We also took part in various activities including Adoration, Sacrament of Reconciliation and Holy Mass. Towards the end we celebrated with a party! Like many of us, I too enjoyed the retreat and the time I spent there, and hope to attend another”. Aleena Thoppil, Year 9
