Are you guys ready for Lux.Be? This amazing weekend is February 2nd - 4th 2018.

As we build to the SYNOD in Rome in October 2018 with the theme of ‘Youth, Faith and Vocation’, at NYMO we have decided to begin this journey at the LUX weekend on 2nd-4th February 2018.

Are you confused about what God has planned for your life? Do you want to trust Him but are unsure of how to do that? Are you aged 11-18years of age? If so, read on…

LUX. be will focus on resting with God. When a child falls asleep on their mother or father they do so because they know them, trust them and are comfortable with them. This is the same with God. When we know God and trust Him, we can rest in Him.

When Jesus died on the cross He said “Into your hands Lord, I commend my spirit”. Can we say the same thing? Do we know God well enough to trust Him with our life? Do we trust Him enough to fall asleep on Him?

We will be joined by incredible people who know Him and have trusted Him. They will guide us through the weekend to lead us deeper into the person of God.

 Join us for this incredible experience of fun and faith. Meet the team, new friends and journey into a deeper relationship with God, our Father.

Check out what we got up to at the last Lux weekend...

LUX is a residential for young Catholics aged 11-18 years of age (secondary school).  Twice a year 100 young people gather together to celebrate our faith by meeting new friends, learning new stuff and praising God.  All this, and having the most unforgettable weekend of their life! 

On February 3rd 2017, over 120 young people, youth leaders, priests, the NYMO team and Bishop Peter gathered for the weekend in Northampton for the latest residential youth weekend ‘Lux’. Open to all those of secondary school age, Lux is an opportunity for young Catholic’s to be formed deeper in their faith, experience community and enjoy the Sacraments alongside games, discussions and this year, a pantomime!

Young people travelled from across the whole diocese, Slough to Kettering, Corby to Aylesbury, Luton, Milton Keynes, Northampton, Rushden, Bedford, almost every area of the diocese was represented.

Fr. Frankie Mulgrew, former stand-up comedian and priest from the Diocese of Salford opened proceedings on Friday evening. With great laughter and learning all were introduced to the theme, ‘Mirth’. Described as “true joy rooted in Christ’, we developed the theme through the weekend. Paschal Uche, an Oscott seminarian continued this development of Saturday focussing on our vocation. Deep rooted joy by following Christs will for us.

Naturally, there was a great deal fun and to encourage our child-like joy an indoor bouncy castle arrived on Saturday afternoon, along with inflatable sumo wrestling suits. Once we had persuaded the adults to get off the bouncy castle all the young people had a blast!

Friend of the diocese, Jimmy Mitchell joined us for the weekend from Nashville, USA. Jimmy is a regular visitor to Northampton often visiting schools and parish youth groups. Jimmy challenged us on Sunday to live this mirth, rooted in Christ by developing holy habits; morning prayer, lectio divina, daily Mass, regular reconciliation.

The weekends are a real high point for us as adults to share our faith with young people and join with them, reminding us all that our Catholic faith is a real joy rooted in Christ.
