Only a few weeks to go until the UK's largest Catholic conference for young people – Flame 2023, takes place at the OVO Arena, Wembley, on Saturday 4th March. Join the Assumption Youth Team for the day and register your place!
Just before Christmas we heard the tremendous news that Cardinal Tagle will be amongst the speakers at Flame. He has spoken to many, many thousands of young people all over the world, and he will be sure to inspire your young people.
He joins the President of the Australian Bishops Conference, Salesian Archbishop of Melbourne, Tim Costelloe, SDB, who is flying half way across the world to be at Flame.
Amongst the musicians are MOBO and Urban Music Award winner Guvna B, rising star Faith Child, Catholic band One Hope Project and soloist Adenike – Adenike was herself a 17 year old at a previous Flame, and since then has been a Finalist on The Voice.
Other speakers during the day include Robert Billot, an American lawyer who is the main character in the film Dark Waters; Jenny Garzón Saavedra is a young advocate joining us from the Amazon rainforest; we will hear an original reflection from David Wells; and Brenden Thompson and Georgia Clarke from Catholic Voices will be introducing Adoration, led by Cardinal Vincent Nichols.

As 1.5 million young Catholics made their way to the World Youth Day events in Lisbon from all over the world with Pope Francis, the Assumption Youth Team banded together with Pax Christi, CAFOD and the Sion Community to celebrate with young people in the heart of London, in Notre Dame de France Church.
On 29th July many sisters and friends of Sr Christine gathered in Twickenham to celebrate her platinum jubilee of religious life. After a beautiful mass in St Mary's University, Twickenham, celebrations continued over lunch in the convent.
The official World Youth Day celebrations take place in Lisbon, Portugal this summer with Pope Francis, reflecting on the theme: "Mary arose and went with haste" (Lk 1:39). For those who cannot travel there in person, the Assumption Sisters’ youth team in collaboration with other movements and groups, are offering a day celebration in Central London on Saturday 5th August 2023 from 11am-5pm in the church of Notre Dame de France in Leicester Square.
