Yes people, get ready for a bumper July! The Antilles Episcopal Conference will be having its third youth assembly and this time, it will be held in the Archdiocese of Kingston, Jamaica from July 9 – 20.
The theme for the assembly is taken from John 4:10: If you only knew what God is offering – evangelizing youths for a fuller life in Christ.
The first youth assembly was held in Curaçao in 1999 and in 2003 we were the hosts. Spiritual preparations for this upcoming event are taking place on the local archdiocesan and vicariate levels as we speak.
The office of Sr Kathy is hoping that at least 300 mature and responsible young persons, ages 16 – 35, will join their fellow regional brothers and sisters as they gather to share their culture and faith with one another.
Registration forms are also available from the office.
As we begin the countdown till July, Vision will publish updates monthly. Apparently, some youths have their bags packed already (Ha! Ha!). You can also email us and let us know how your preparations are coming along for the event.
It is hoped that more parishes will get involved and assist in raising funds for the youth who wish to go. Spread the word, people “big things ah gwan”.
