Meeting Pope Francis

Monday 15th August 2022

Our Brigade President, Rev Dez Johnston recently met with Pope Francis.

Dez was joining 300 young people at Alpha’s Youth Camp in Central Italy when he had the opportunity to meet with the Pope in the Vatican City.

Pope Francis told those gathered: “May Jesus become your great Friend, your Companion along the way. May the living Jesus become your life! Every day and forever.”

Dez shared: “To meet Pope Francis was a huge honour and a very special moment. He is someone who truly believes in the power of young people and encouraged us to dream of a future which they have a unique part of.”

“As BB groups across the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland prepare to open their doors once again, it’s important to remember the incredibly important role we can play in children and young peoples’ journeys in faith and living life to the full.”
