Our Faith

The Catholic faith is the body of belief held by Catholics. It has been revealed in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God who leaves it for us as our means of salvation.


Are you aged between 13 and 18 and maybe thinking that God could be calling you to the priesthood? Then why not join the Under-18’s Vocations Group which has become a regular event in the life of the Archdiocese and now has eight young men who attend. The meetings take place once a month on a Sunday afternoon. At each gathering there is a talk, a discussion and a time of prayer. These regular meetings give young men the support they may need, an opportunity to pray and reflect and also to meet and socialise with other likeminded young Catholics. The group meets on the first Sunday of each month at St. Mary’s Lowe House, St. Helens and following the meeting we join with other young people from across the Archdiocese for the monthly Youth Alive Mass at 6.30pm.
