After the celebration of Mass, the Tuam Diocesan Youth Council will host a barbeque and bonfire.  The event will be addressed by guest speaker Cameron Stewart, founder of not-for-profit movement and clothing line Ark (Acts of Random Kindness).  See Tuam Diocesan Youth Council http://www.dyctuam.ie/.

In advance of the youth Mass in Ballintubber Cliona Feerick, Chairperson of the Diocesan Youth Council, said “The Ark story is a story of hope. The idealism of Cameron and his friends is truly inspiring and is a good news story worth hearing.  As Christians we can make a difference to our world.  Ark challenges each one of us to answer for ourselves the gospel question ‘Who is my neighbour?’ I am convinced that Cameron’s story will connect with and rekindle the idealism of young and old alike.”
