RESONATE 2024-5

RESONATE is Westminster Youth Ministry’s official Catholic intellectual formation series for young adults aged 18-35 within the Diocese of Westminster.


Our Holy Father Pope Francis has expressed that, “In this time of preparation, I would greatly desire that we devote 2024, the year preceding the Jubilee event, to a great “symphony” of prayer.” The theme of the Jubilee Year is ‘Pilgrims of Hope’ and so, just as we prepare prayerfully for any pilgrimage, so we will prepare prayerfully to become such pilgrims.

What better way, then, to devote the year to prayer, than to dive into the prayer that God himself taught us through the words of Jesus according to St Matthew (Matthew 6:9-13). Making our way, step by step, through the Lord’s prayer over the course of the year, we will learn to listen to the riches that God wants to share with us through the different themes unfolded in the prayer’s profound words.

Pope Francis invites YOU to seize this opportunity, to stand up and begin walking with the global Catholic family towards the Holy Year. Let’s fill the room with young people saying to Jesus “Here I am, teach me to pray”. To you, Jesus says, When you pray, say

OUR FATHER WHO ART IN HEAVEN…
