In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, the youth of the world received the message of mercy for them to carry and share to other fellow youth in leading them to the way of Christ. This year, we congratulate our 16 Youth delegates for successfully participating and representing Santuario Eucaristico and St. Jerome Vicariate in the recent Archdiocesan Youth Day last October 27-29, 2016 at Sta. Rita de Cascia Parish in Gingoog, Misamis Oriental with the theme: The Filipino Youth: Missionary Disciples of the Eucharist.

The Filipino community is indeed grateful and blessed with enormous number of young and old missionaries who serve the Catholic Church with genuine love for service. In this year’s theme, the Filipino Youth is called to become Missionary Disciples of the Eucharist as they already are. This was further emphasized in Fr. Remel Mag-usara, SSJV in his talk, “In virtue of their baptism, all the members of the People of God have become missionary disciples (cf.Mt. 28:19)” which concludes that “All the baptized are agents of evangelization (#120).” He also emphasized that in order to become Missionaries of the Eucharist, we must identify our true mission, our ways to execute discipleship, and our values to become a Eucharistic person. Therefore, the young people is encourage to dig deeper into the importance of identity in order for them to genuinely serve and know their purpose in the society and the world.

In this Archdiocesan activity, our youth therefore learned the value of love and genuine service which leads to good discipleship. They were able to contemplate and deepen their understanding of the their mission as Filipino Missionary Disciples. They are encouraged and inspired to brighten up the light of Christ so it may shine upon their fellow youth and the other youth who are in darkness.

Archdiocesan Youth Day 2016

As we continue to serve the Lord, we continue to make miracles of faith. The whole Catholic Church is indeed happy to have gathered all the youth from different places in unity to God. May this year’s Archdiocesan Youth Day continue to inspire and lead the youth to become missionary disciples of the Lord. Kudos to the Eucharistic Youth and the whole Archdiocesan Youth Apostolate!
