During February half term, Mary and Iain Biddle took three young people for a wonderful stay with the Salesian Sisters at the Blundellsands community. This group of committed young people regularly attend the youth group "Create Space" in Kendal, which was born out of the Salesian Spirituality Team.
During the stay, Mary and Iain delivered the VIDES Youth Leadership Course, encouraging the young people to think about their own gifts and talents while focusing on their future leadership potential. The theme for the stay was "You are young, you are precious, you are loved." They took time to look at the lives of St. John Bosco and St. Mary Mazzarello, as well as discussing and reflecting on the Salesian way of working with young people.
