Youth Ministry

Welcome to Youth Ministry in the Diocese of Limerick!

Our youth ministry programmes, pilgrimages and events are all centred around three flames

Fáilte – Welcome; ensuring that everyone feels welcome, that they are accepted and valued for who they are and that they all feel like they belong.

Foghlaim – Learning; at every event we try to create opportunities for young people to learn something new about themselves, their friends, their faith or about the world they live in.

Guí – Prayer; every time we gather we give time to prayer, to connecting with God and with our faith community. These moments of prayer bring us closer to each other and to Jesus. 

These flames are the three fires of Muintearas Íosa, a Diocesan Youth Group that has been running for over forty years and which focuses on the importance of journeying with young people and building relationships through positive shared experiences.  

Youth Ministry Programmes and Events are currently led by Aoife Walsh (with help and support from lots of volunteers). Details of our three main programmes, pilgrimages and events are listed below. 

If you are interested in running a youth ministry event in your parish please contact us as we would be only too happy to resource or support parish youth ministry initiatives in any way we can.
