On Saturday 2nd March, Flame 2019 took place at Wembley Arena, with over 8000 people attending what is the biggest Catholic youth event in England and Wales.
We took a group which was led by our Sixth Form Spiritual Coordinators and the day was absolutely jam packed full of live performances, singers, incredible speakers, dramas, Gospel choirs and all was concluded with Adoration in front of the Blessed Sacrament, which was led by Cardinal Vincent Nichols.
A great day was had by all – here is what some of our students had to say:
“Flame was an energetic and fun experience – 100% would go again!” – Willow Piggott-Gardner (Year 13)
“Flame was a fantastic experience and had a brilliant feel of faith and community.” – Lexy Raymond (Year 13)
“Flame blew me away, it was really enjoyable and an amazing day out with my own school community as well as other young people of the same faith from all around the country.” – Fran Bertolaso (Year 13)
“Flame was the best uplifting experience! I learnt so much and it was very inspirational for young people.” – Emily Healy (Year11)
