Nightfever comes to Glasgow

Gentle candlelight and stirring music fills a darkened St Aloysius´s in Glasgow on a Saturday evening.  With Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament this evening is very powerful and particularly moving.  The church fills up with intercessors, priests who have come to minister through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and of course those unexpecting passers-by who were invited into the church by a pair of young people who were volunteering through street evangelisation.

Nightfever has taken place in Glasgow since August 2012. It has been supported over the past two and a half years by many young people who desire to bring others to Christ and older volunteers who have selflessly given their time to make these events possible.  Through Street Evangelisation – and much grace – many people come into the church that have maybe never been in a church before or haven’t been to church for a long time.  Some have faith, some do not!

Through mediation, devotion, prayer and Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament a prayerful atmosphere is created.   People are able to feel at ease to think about their life and faith and to think perhaps that the Catholic Church is different to their perceptions, particularly in regards to what they may have heard in the media.  There are a number of priests in the church available for the Sacrament of Confession or for people to just have the opportunity to  speak with them and share what is on their heart.

Nightfever first took place shortly after World Youth Day in Cologne 2005 and was an amazing success.  It now runs regularly in over 30 cities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and soon in Denmark and Canada too. Many bishops support this event and often come to celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.  Nightfever is organized by different parishes, communities, confraternities, students and employees, seminarians and can be an important part of the evangelisation process in reaching out to lost souls.

If you have any questions or would like to volunteer at the next one, please contact us using the contact form on this page.

God bless,
Nightfever Glasgow
