Celebrate Cleethorpes Family Conference

Celebrate Cleethorpes Family Conference 11th – 12th July 2015: This year’s family conference will take as its theme, ‘Your word is a lamp to guide my feet’ (Ps 119:105); in the words of the Most Rev Kevin McDonald, Archbishop Emeritus of Southwark, ‘What struck me most about it was the way in which whole families were involved and that young people who have grown up with Celebrate have become mature and confident Christians. I think there are lessons here for the Church as a whole.’
This is the third such weekend based at the Holy Family Catholic Academy in Cleethorpes. There will be presentations and teachings from David Matthews, Jenny Baker and Barry & Margaret Mizen. Steve Murray, a mime artist, will be back, along with the local puppet power team. There will be a full programme for all young people. For more information, click on the poster above or visit
