Stephanie O'Donnell came back for a return visit to the show to tells us about what Youth 2000 Ireland got upto for the summer with their Youth Festival at Clonmacnoise where up to 1000 young people from all over Ireland attended the alternative summer festival
Youth 2000 is an international movement of young people called to spread the Good News of the Catholic faith and share this experience with other young people. They have around 40 weekly prayer groups around the country, 16 to 18 weekend retreats throughout the year, a summer festival, an annual ball and various other social events - all organised by young people, for young people. Their motto is "Youth leading youth to the heart of the Church."
Local regular Youth 2000 meetings are held at the following places:
- Abbeyfeale - every month on the second Saturday - the next one is 9th October 2010
- Dominican Priory on Glentworth St., Off O'Connell St. every Wednesdays @ 8.15 pm
- Lixnaw Convent Chapel, Tralee Co. Kerry every Thursdays at 7.30pm
This week’s gospel reflected on during the show is the short version of the set gospel for this week and focuses on the two parables of the shepherd seeking the lost sheep and the woman seeking the lost coin. These parables have been called the parables of God's mercy and viewed as the distilled essence of the Gospel emphasising the extravagant love of God.
