Ohio students helping young British Catholics experience joys of faith
SHREWSBURY, England (CNS) -- A group of American students has embarked on a mission to England in the hope of helping young Catholics grow more excited about their faith. The six theology students from the Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio, will spend two months in the Diocese of Shrewsbury at the invitation of Bishop Mark Davies. The bishop has dedicated 2017 as a "Year for Mission" within the diocese and the visit by the students is part of the activities for the period. The mission of the American group follows Bishop Davies' visit to Steubenville in 2016. He said he returned deeply impressed by the commitment to the faith of the students there. He accepted an offer of a visit to England by the student, who raised money to pay for air travel across the Atlantic. "We are very happy to welcome this witness of young Catholics from the United States," Bishop Davies said in a statement June 5.
