Its on iTunes much quicker than we thought would be possible - we must have submitted it to Apple on a good day!
Thanks to everyone for your support - YouCast seems to have wings all of its own, we would expect downloads from the UK and a few from the US but how about Japan, Vietnam. Malaysia and Kenya?!
If anyone has anything to contribute - even just telling us who you are, what you do and where (that's what we wanted to do originally) then just record it and email the file to email@example.com
Oh, and spread the word!

Just to let you know that YouCast has grown rather quickly. Thanks for your interest.
Episode 2 is now available with contributions from Bishop Terry Drainey, Fr Robert Barron and Jack Regan (who ever he is!!! :-) )
The podcast is now available on iTunes - which makes downloading easier for everyone.
If you use feedburner or some such here is the feed:
but the easiest thing is to just subscribe in iTunes.
There is more to come from YouCast - we had thought to only publish six episodes between now and next July to mirror the academic year and the parts of the liturgical year covered in that period but we have more stuff for you.
If there is something you would like us to cover please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Please find the press release for the CYMFed Congress - feel free to share:
CYMFed, the Catholic Youth Ministry Federation is to hold its third Congress at The Sage, Gateshead, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne on March 16 next year.
Bishop Lucas Van Looy SDB, Bishop of Ghent and Christopher Pilkington, Executive Producer of Youth Programming for Endemol TV, will be the keynote speakers tackling the subject of capturing the hearts and minds of young people.
The Salesian sponsored Congress calls together everyone engaged in youth ministry in any capacity from across the Catholic Church in England and Wales. Organisers hope that the day will bring together, inspire and inform around 1,500 youth workers and ministers in the Year of Faith.
This Congress, the first to take place outside London, takes ‘The Faith Story’ as its theme for the Year of Faith. Delegates will receive a book published especially for the Congress which will contain the faith stories of young people from all over England and Wales. Some young people will also give testimony on the day.
Fr Dermott Donnelly, CYMFed Board Member and Director of Youth Services for Hexham and Newcastle Diocese said, ‘We are delighted to be able to present youth workers, priests, deacons, catechists, chaplains, chaplaincy workers and even concerned parents and parishioners with a chance to come together for the good of the young people they serve.’
‘The two previous times the Congress has taken place have proved to be hugely important for those who were there. I am delighted that this Congress is taking place at The Sage. My sincere hope is that very many people engaged in youth ministry all over the country and especially in the North of England will come together on the day.’
Fr Paul Farrer, Middlesbrough Diocesan Youth Chaplain said, ‘The Congress is a great day. There is always something interesting to listen to, lots of people to meet and plenty of resources to pick up along the way.’
‘Youth ministers are called to a great awareness of both Church teaching and the need of the young people they serve. Maintaining an open and authentic witness which excludes no young person is difficult but that is what we are called to. Youth ministry has its own unique set of challenges which mean that companionship, witness and catechesis with young people are also unique. It cannot be bundled with any other ministry.’
Fr Dermott said, ‘The idea is simple but really important, we want youth ministers to be inspired and given something for their own journey. We are stronger for the sharing and we work better together. This is not a big event for the sake of a big event, we want you to come so that at the end of the day you will be empowered and enabled as you go back to what ever your ministry is.’
The day will include a sharing Café, a market place and space for prayer and reflection and is open to youth leaders, chaplains, teachers, priests, young leaders, concerned parents and parishioners.
The Conference fee is £12 and places can be booked by contacting you own Diocesan Youth Chaplain, or writing to; CYMFed Congress, Diocesan Youth Village, Pemberton Road, Allensford, Consett, Co. Durham, DH8 9BA or by visiting www.cymfed.org

We are planning some Lenten multimedia presentations which we will post of Youtube again!
As is out custom in MYMission Towers, we have had a go at getting our own version of the notes on the Pastoral Theme together. We aim to make it something people can use in their preparation with youth groups making the journey and we aim to have it in less than 1,000 words.
We hope the result is a little more user friendly in terms of the use of English and some of the ideas expressed. We realise that this does mean we have used editorial license the result possibly being that some will think we have missed out key elements. If so, we refer you back to the original!
