MUMBAI, FEB 22, 2017: Dominic Savio parish, Wadala held its Youth Day on Saturday 19 and youth from different areas of the parish participated in it.
The programme began with a solemn Mass. The Savion Youth group guided by Father Brian Moras and Father Shekar Mariadas, helped organise the event. The ice-breaker games helped everyone get to know each other as some of the youngsters were participating for the first time in a youth event in the parish.
Father Cleophas Braganza of Don Bosco Youth Services (DBYS), Matunga led an interactive session on the Pope Francis's letter- Amoris Latetia, stressing the importance of Prayer and Church in the life of a Family and how even the youngsters can contribute to it.
Father McEnroe Lopes, Vocation Promoter- DBYS , gave a brief summary on the summer camps to be held and the Youth Pasch experience during the Holy Week.
The youth were made aware by way of a power point presentation of the work done and the programmes held for the youth throughout the year. The scope of work available and the need for more youth to join, was also discussed. The movie prepared by the youth for the diocesan competition on the Parish Works of Mercy was also screened.
The session ended with the Youth filling out commitment forms, choosing areas of interest and the work they would like to assist with.
