Websites for Young Catholic Adults

You may well find some of the resources in the “teens” section helpful – here are some others we feel are more appropriate for an older age group.

Ascension Presents
Ascension Presents seek to present the truth and beauty of the Catholic faith through media and to answer the longings of the human heart with the transformative power of the Gospel. Short and inspiring clips are presented by some of the best catholic speakers out there:

Events for Young Adults

The Christian Heritage Centre are running a short, summer course on Faith & Reason: A Catholic Integration, taking place from 5-8 August 2021.

Two excellent and experienced tutors will be facilitating the course and there will be time for plenty of discussion, social time and prayer. The programme is a residential experience, which takes place all on-site in the beautiful Stonyhurst estate, which is only 2 hours and 10 minutes on the train from London.
This course is for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the Catholic faith. Young adults may find it particularly informative, as would any teachers or catechists in our parish who find themselves fielding commonly-asked questions about Catholicism. Or you may feel you will simply benefit from some time away, after a challenging year, and are keen to develop your own personal knowledge and understanding of our beliefs.
Go to the Christian Heritage Centre webpage for more information about the course, or to send a message or an expression of interest.
