CYM Musical The Crusader – Second Audition 22 February 2020
As part of the CYM programme for 2020, we will be putting on a brand new and original musical! The Crusader is about a young Knight called William who, upon his return from the Third Crusade with King Richard the Lionheart, is delayed on his journey and presumed to be dead, yet survives to undergo a new conversion of heart leading him to turn away from the path of violence and warfare. When William eventually returns home he must find his place in the fight of his people against a corrupt Baron and his oppressive regime. There are many characters, sub-plots, fun-filled drama and action in this project that has strong themes of faith and forgiveness, and tackles the question: ‘how do we effectively fight injustice?’. Although ideally suited to Years 9, 10 and 11, we encourage all young people and members of the deanery community with a passion for music, acting, singing and stage production to get involved in this exciting production which we hope to perform in mid-late Spring. We will be holding the second audition for actors/singers and musicians to be part of the orchestra on Saturday 22 February from 12-2pm at St Joseph’s Church Hall, Plaistow Lane, Bromley. (The first audition was held on 15 February.) For more information, please contact Joseph Gulliford (Seminarian at St. Edmund’s and writer) email@example.com, or Susan Longhurst (Deanery Youth Coordinator) firstname.lastname@example.org.
Faith in Action – from 25 January 2020
‘Faith in Action’ is a national award scheme from CYMFED which challenges young people aged 9-18yrs to make a difference in the world through service and spiritual reflection. There are four levels of the award – Pin, Bronze, Silver, Gold and each one recognises and celebrates the good work and positive contribution made by young people in their parishes, schools and communities. If you are a young person who reads at Mass, sings or plays an instrument in the choir, serves on the altar, helps or volunteers in your school or community in any way, consider getting involved for 2020! The Faith in Action Award (Year 4) launched on Saturday 25 January at 10.30am at St Joseph’s Church, Plaistow Lane, Bromley.
