Year of the Youth: The Mission to Evangelize continues

Young people's mission continues as the Year of the Youth concludes.

This was what Rev. Fr. Jade Licuanan, Director of the Archdiocesan Commission on Youth said during the Commissioning and Thanksgiving ceremony of the Year of the Youth held at the Our Lady of Guadalupe Minor Seminary, Makati, on November 23-24, 2019.

According to Fr. Licuanan, the Year of the Youth will not close because the church is sending the young people to continue its mission of evangelization.

“Ayaw po nating isara ang Year of the Youth, mas maganda po ituloy natin ang pag-aalaala, paghubog, pagbibigay halaga sa mga kabataan” Fr. Licuanan told Radio Veritas.

Fr. Licuanan further added that the young people can greatly contribute to the promotion of peace and unity especially that the Year of Ecumenism, Interreligious Dialogue, and Indigenous Peoples began as part of the preparation for the five hundred years of Christianity in the Philippines.

“Tamang-tama yung pagninilay natin about No Borders, No Limits, somehow maghahanda sa ating mga kabataan para buksan ang kanilang mga pinto o kanilang mga bintana ng buhay para sa pagkakaisa ng buong Kristiyanismo," Father Licuanan said.

With the theme “Sent! No Borders, No Limits!”, the event commenced with the Opening Liturgy featuring the Archdiocesan Pilgrim Youth Cross and Blood Relic of Saint John Paul II.

Attended by more than 2,000 young people from the different parishes in the Archdiocese of Manila, the 2-day event was concluded with the celebration of the Holy Eucharist presided over by Manila Auxiliary Bishop Broderick Pabillo at six in the morning of November 24. (Jheng M. Prado/RCAM-AOC)
