Due to popular demand, Living Youth, in conjunction with the Parish of Maghera (Newcastle & Bryansford), is delighted to announce a second training day for Parishes wishing to launch the GIFT 1 Programme.  

The training for co-ordinators will take place on Saturday 15th February in Newcastle. Thirty representatives from parishes across the Diocese completed the training in October and will begin delivering the programme in the New Year.

GIFT is a fun, interactive Programme that provides young people with a positive experience of faith and enhances their connection with the Parish community after Confirmation. It also affirms the on-going faith formation of the entire Parish community.

The GIFT Programme has been well established in the Parish of Maghera over the last number of years. Please follow the link below to gain an insight into this successful model.
