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
