What have people said about Spirit in the City?
“Thanks for inviting me to be part of the festival on Saturday and congratulations on what seemed to be a successful Spirit filled day! There were some amazing moments seeing passers by stopping and enjoying the music, the atmosphere, the conversations and every time I looked there always seemed to be at least one person or more at confession and prayer ministry”!
“Thank you for all the hard work in co-ordinating and making the Spirit in the City happen! It felt a very blessed day. We opted to be part of the feeding the homeless ministry, so we were making sandwiches in the parish centre and then went along Piccadilly distributing what we had. It was good that this was seen to be part of the day”.
“Thank you so much for a great Spirit in the City few days. I am sorry I was not able to commit to anything before hand but was delighted to be part of the team on Saturday. Well done to all of you”.
“It is an amazing event! There is a tremendous sense of joy and unity in coming together for this festival. It offers something for everyone.”
