Are you ready for Lux.Gold?
Lux is a residential weekend for young Catholics aged 11-18 years old from across the Diocese of Northampton. Held at the amazing Kings Park Centre in Northampton from Friday evening 1st February 2019 and finishing on Sunday afternoon 3rd February 2019. It costs £100pp for the weekend. Transport is available from Slough or Luton at an extra cost of £10 pp. Many of our parishes are willing to support young people to attend the Lux weekend in a variety of ways so please tell your parish priest you would like to go!
During the weekend we focus on a theme. In 2019 the theme is ‘GOLD”.
Some people find believing in God easy. Most of us do not! For all of us it will only grow if we work at it.
Athletes train for many hours, days, weeks, months years to be in peak physical condition to run their race and yet we expect to turn up at Mass once a week (perhaps!) and that is enough to run the race with God. There are technicalities to learn to be able gain the advantages to jump hurdles or throw a shotput to the best of our ability. If we do not get the technique right, we will not achieve our best. Faith can be like this. God has set out a track for us, but we must keep our eyes set on Him to stay on track and perfect our faith.
‘Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.’ Hebrews 12:1-3.
At ‘lux. Gold’ we will be exploring ways to prepare ourselves for a life of faith. For the sprint and the long-distance races with hurdles and triathlons and whatever life throws at us. We will be receiving tips on how best to train to develop in our faith both individually and as a community to get our own GOLD medal!
With engaging speakers, lively workshops, profound encounters through prayer and lots of fun we hope that Lux will provide enough knowledge, spirit and friendships to enhance all our spiritual lives.
