On the Vigil of the Feast of Christ the King, the Salford diocesan Young Adults group helped to lead a virtual Holy Half Hour of prayer for the end of the pandemic.
The service was streamed from St Catherine of Siena, Didsbury, and was introduced by Bishop John Arnold. Following was a period of silence, bidding prayers prerecorded by young adults from the group and Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.
During the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, a candle was lit for every parish in the diocese in an act of solidarity from the young adults.
Youth ministry manager, Lorraine Leonard, said: “We were really pleased that our Young Adult group was be able to host the holy half hour, which was experienced by many around the diocese.
“It was a really powerful way of, on the Feast of Christ the King, standing in solidarity with all of those around the diocese facing challenges and loss due to the pandemic.”
