PYD6 coordinator says preparation will be more organised this year

PENAMPANG – The coordinator of the Penampang Youth Day-6 (PYD6), John Moinjil, said that this year’s preparation will be more organised in terms of logistics, safety, and cleanliness.

He said this at the organising committee meeting here in Penampang on 23 May 2017.

The bi-annual PYD  with the theme, ‘Do Not Be Afraid (Jeremiah 1:8), I Want To Serve’, is fully geared for the four-day event which is expected to draw over 500 youths from seven zones within the parish, as well as invited delegations from neighbouring parishes of Dontozidon, Inobong and Terawi. The event is to be held from Aug 31 to Sept 4  at St Michael Parish Hall.

The programmes are planned with youth trends in mind so as to help them to live their Christian life in the ways according to the teachings of the Church by engaging in the digital.

The first activity will be the 10km PYD6 Charity Run which will be flagged off on June 18.  So far more participants have registered compared to last year because of the greater awareness campaign being carried out by the committee through the social media. – SOCCOM Penampang

Penampang Youth Day 6 officially launched

PENAMPANG – The first stage of the Penampang Youth Day 6 (PYD6-2017), with the official theme ‘Do not be afraid’ and ‘I want to serve,’ was officially launched on 26 Apr 2017 at the Church of Assumption of Our Lady Sugud (CAOL) here.  CAOL hosted the 5th edition of the camp two years ago.

The Mass, which was celebrated by Father Wiandigool Runsab, preceded the launching ceremony, which was to officially introduce the PYD6 committee members and to unveil the official logo.  The logo was chosen from the logo contest, organised by the media team hmonths earlier.

The ceremony involved a symbolic hand-over of the banner containing the official logo between former host CAOL Sugud and the current host parish, St Michael Church Penampang.

Penampang Youth Day 6 will be held on 31 Aug – 3 Sept 2017 at St Michael Parish with an estimated involvement of 500 participants.

It is now entering a fundraising phase where the upcoming events are a 10-km PYD6 Run on June 17, a  Selfie contest as well as a Short Film contest.

Runners of the 10-km Run will only have to pay RM75 and each will get a race pack containing a T-shirt, Bib number, finisher medal and a certificate. Interested runners can contact Wendy (016-8229179), or Howell (016-8482938) or Pamila (014-3575895).

PYD6 media team initiates climb up Tivung Hill for promo

PENAMPANG – The media team for Penampang Youth Day 6 (PYD6) initiated a climb up Tivung Hill in Kg Dungkahang here on 5 March 2017 to promote the event.

St Michael Parish will host the PYD6  on Aug 31 – Sep 3  involving some 300 parish youths.  It will also be open to other parishes.

The theme for PYD6 is taken from Jeremiah 1:8 “Do not be afraid – I want to serve.”   The main organising team and local organising team are both from the host parish with assistance from the youth of the churches under the parish.

The climb to Tivung Hill was meant to illustrate the theme of bringing the youths of the parish to awareness of being courageous witnesses to Christ wherever they are and to be agents of change in society.
