The Diocese of Aberdeen Youth Ministry gives young people the opportunity to grow in their relationship with God while encouraging and empowering the whole Church to walk alongside them sharing the message of the Gospel.

Throughout the year there are many opportunities for young people to get involved in events, pilgrimages and individual sessions in conjunction with the Dominican Sisters of Saint Cecilia, the Community of St Andrew and your local parishes.

If we want it to have real meaning and fulfilment, as you want and as you deserve, I say to each one of you, ‘Put on faith’, and your life will take on a new flavour, it will have a compass to show you the way; ‘put on hope’ and every one of your days will be enlightened and your horizon will no longer be dark, but luminous; ‘put on love’, and your life will be like a house built on rock, your journey will be joyful, because you will find many friends to journey with you.
