Fanning the Flame Summer Camp 20th - 24th August 2018


This summer, the Fanning the Flame Catholic Mission will once again be running their Summer camp for 10-25 year olds in the New Forest. The Bishop was there last summer and it was great with everyone really enjoying it. There was good crowd of youngsters from all over the Diocese. The weather helped and there was an outdoor Mass.


Wherever you are in your Catholic faith, come and be refreshed and renewed in God’s love for you!
