The Catenian Association has a firm commitment to helping Youth. Our support for CYMFED, through sponsorship of the Flame events as well as Embrace in Liverpool, Brightlights in Stafford, Youth 2000 in Walsingham are a few of many examples of major events. Support has also been given to youth projects in West Somerset and Portsmouth. The Public Speaking competitions for 16 to 18 year olds is now firmly established throughout Great Britain culminating in the National Final in Manchester which goes from strength to strength.
Through the work of the Youth Working Group of the Great Britain National Council progress has been made in liasing with Diocesan Youth services and University chaplaincies. There is representation on Diocesan Youth committees and it is hoped again to have an input at the University chaplains conference. The collation of these and other Catenian youth initiatives is ongoing.
