What is LACY (Leicestershire Active Catholic Youth)?

We are about due for an update on our blog. This time, we learn a little about the Leicestershire Active Catholic Youth organisation (aka. LACY)...

What is LACY?
Leicestershire Active Catholic Youth (LACY) is a group for young Catholic teenagers and young people.

What does LACY do?
LACY is very much about Faith and Fun. Social time with activities, indoor and outdoor, are mixed in with opportunities for young people to explore their Faith with others of a similar age – through drama, dance, music and talking. Families and friends are also invited.

Who runs LACY?
LACY is run by volunteers who form a working group to come up with new ideas and events. The working group includes priests, members from religious communities, lay people and, most importantly, youth members. The working group regularly holds meetings around Leicestershire and everyone is more than welcome to attend. The group are always asking for more Volunteers! Bishop Patrick McKinney is the Patron of LACY and receives regular updates from the group.

Upcoming events include:

  • 7th October 2018 ”Praise and Worship” Afternoon for all young teenagers and Young Adults – A Post Confirmation Opportunity – followed by Adoration and Benediction at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Goodwood Road, Leicester, LE5 6SG.
  • 16th December 2018 Advent Youth Mass at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Countesthorpe Road, South Wigston, LE18 4PG, followed by “Food” in the Church hall.
