July 8, 2008 in General, News

Knock Youth Festival, 2007It’s summertime, and young people’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of festivals. There’s Oxegen and the Electric Picnic, of course; but a surprise attraction for as many as 1,000 young people this year is the Knock Summer Youth Festival. The brainchild of the Knock Youth Ministry, it will take place from 24 to 27 July. It aims “to help people get back in touch with what is really important in life. Are they happy?”  Michael Paul Gallagher SJ will speak to the gathering about ‘faith, unbelief, culture and spirituality’. For more details, see the website.
