TAWAU – The 6th Youth Leaders Camp (YLC 6) drew 148 participants from across the Sandakan Diocese.
Tawau hosted the 4-night-5-day event on 7-11 Feb 2018 at Holy Trinity Parish here.
The theme was taken from the 33rd World Youth Day: “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favour with God” (Lk 1:30).
In his message to the participants, Bishop Julius Gitom said that the Church looks upon the youth with hope as they hold the key to the next generation. To achieve that, they have to begin now.
The prelate urged them to learn from the Blessed Mother what self-sacrificing love means and the readiness to do God’s will.
The event featured several inputs interspersed with praise and worship, testimonies, games and other activities.
The objectives of the YLC 6 were to (1) help the participants to encounter the Lord; (2) deepen the sense of belonging in their respective ministries; and (3) strengthen the bond of friendship and communication among themselves. – Sandakan diocesan newsblog
