Dunedin Young Catholics combined Youth Mass

On Saturday August 11th we held a Candle Light Vigil Mass at St. Patricks Basilica in South Dunedin, followed by hot chocolate and s'mores around the fire.  It was a moving service as youth from several Dunedin parishes gathered to worship together at Mass singing Taizé music. Special thanks to Mercy Parish for hosting and the Holy Name 7pm student choir for the music.  Scroll through these photos (by clicking right) to get a sense of the atmosphere of the evening.
