I joined the Animate team because: I have seen that young people do care about their own faith - not the faith their parents may have instilled in them as youngsters, but developing and thinking about their own spirituality. I want to help the young people’s Catholic faith grow and hopefully be a role model in positively promoting the Catholic Church.
