YouCast - first Catholic youth ministry podcast in UK | YouCast - first Catholic youth ministry podcast in UK
MYMission: Middlesbrough Diocesan Youth Mission Team have begun YouCast, the first Catholic Youth Ministry Podcast in the UK aimed at all those who work with young people in a Catholic setting.
Two episodes of the podcast, which launched earlier this month, are now available and have been very well received, with large download stats for the UK and even downloads in the US and Japan.
The ethos behind the podcast is simple - let's tell as many youth ministers as much about what is going on in the field of Catholic youth ministry as possible. This just may help us all get to know each other and each other's work a little better, it may inform our own work, allow us to develop our own understanding and spirituality, and feed us as we try to help young people in their relationship with God and the Church.
Fr Paul Farrer STB, Diocesan Youth Chaplain, writes: "Originally, we wanted to simply reach our fellow youth ministers in the Diocese of Middlesbrough but when we began to talk about the possibility of a podcast many other people expressed an interest. The result is YouCast.
