Kuching youths prepare for Archdiocesan Youth Day 2019

KUCHING –  The Kuching Archdiocesan Youth Commission (KAYC), in collaboration with all the parishes and youth groups in the archdiocese, will be organising Kuching Archdiocesan Youth Day for three consecutive years. The theme will be taken from the World Youth Day 2019 in Panama, which has been announced by Pope Francis.

The themes constitute a journey of faith, love, and hope and, on this journey, the youths will be accompanied by the Virgin Mary, “for he has looked with favour on the lowliness of his servant. Surely, from now on all generations will call me blessed.” (Lk 1:48)

The first two themes (2017 and 2018) are meant to be celebrated at the parish level and the highlight for the Kuching Archdiocesan Youth Day will be in 2019.

This year, 31 Aug- 3 Sept 2017, with the theme taken from the Gospel of Luke, “For The Mighty One has done great things for me, and Holy is His name,” (Lk 1:49), about 500 youths from different areas in the archdiocese gathered at the Archdiocesan Curia and Cathedral Pastoral Centre (ACCPC) to deepen their faith and learn about the Blessed Mother.

The gathering ended with a Closing Mass presided by Archbishop Simon Poh. – kchadyouth
