With thanks to all who supported this Retreat to the Briars Youth Centre. The Briars Team provided a warm welcome with an excellent programme in the Season of Advent.  We were delighted our Lead Lay Chaplain, Jamie, could spend the first part of the week with us and we are grateful for his time and hard work. A special thank you to Father Paul who celebrated Mass with us on Thursday evening.  We enjoyed a fire pit with hot chocolate and marshmallows, a walk in Derbyshire, a disco, quiz, a Modern Nativity and an action packed Advent Calendar in real life!
