National Celebration of the YCW in England & Wales

 

The Young Christian Workers (YCW) will be celebrating their 80th year in England and Wales on 18th November 2017 from 4pm, with a Mass celebrated by the Rt. Rev. John Arnold, Bishop of Salford at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Evangelist in Salford, followed by a celebration in the Cathedral Assembly Room.

 

In England and Wales, the first YCW group was founded in Wigan in 1937, with Father Gerry Rimmer as the Chaplain and Patrick Keegan, a young factory worker, as President. Patrick would go on to become the first lay man to address an Ecumenical Council of the Church when he addressed the Second Vatican Council on the role of the laity.   

 

All members, past and present, friends and supporters are welcome.
