Joy Spreading and Videos

Joy Spreading, a an informal gathering of young people to listen to a guest speaker, talk together about faith and other matters, and to socialise.

It started in the Year of Youth and continued in parishes round the diocese.  As life begins to return to a new kid of normal after COVID-19 restrictions, we encourage you to hold a Joy Spreading gathering in your area.  If you are not able to organise a guest speaker in person, below is a selection of videos of wonderful speakers to get the conversation going at your Joy Spreading event.
