Youth Minister 

Steve Harris

Steve is the Diocesan Youth Minister for the Bedford, Central Beds, Milton Keynes North and Milton Keynes South Pastoral Areas. Steve also looks after NYMO’s young leader’s programme The Salt & Light Project, NYMO's Blaze events, which are retreats for Confirmandi across the Diocese and Lux.teachings, an evening of faith formation, fun and food for young people, that  travels from parish to parish, across the Diocese. 

Steve began his ministry with young people as a volunteer at Soli House, the youth retreat centre for the Archdiocese of Birmingham. He spent a number of years working in residential settings before moving to the Northampton Diocese in August 2013 to take up his new role at NYMO. He is currently studying for a M.A in Theology at St. Mary’s University, Twickenham.

Steve completed his first (and last) marathon earlier this year. He spent the whole race, neck and neck with a man dressed as a lighthouse but eventually Steve emerged victorious.

He likes calligraphy, barbecues and the Lake District.  His favourite Saints are St. Joseph, St. Margaret Clitheroe and St. Maximilian Kolbe.
