Stirling 2015: Scottish Catholic Youth Festival is organised by Catholic Youth Service Scotland, the youth section of the Bishops’ Conference of Scotland.
Following on from a very successful World Youth Day style event in 2013, Scotland’s Rio, the demand for another event was such that Stirling 2015 is well into the planning stages.

There will be prayer and worship, workshops, time to get to know each other and social events.
