After the appointment of the new youth office bearers on the 30th of June, The parish has witnessed increased participation of youth in various parish services and other activities. Their magnetic enthusiasm has attracted more and more youth to become a part of this process of making a difference in this parish. Youth are a lot more than just playing games or singing and dancing. Here at SAINT MOTHER TERESA YOUTH (SMTY), our youth have been directing their intellect, energy and creativity to pump up the atmosphere through their small but effective initiatives.
From organizing to managing, from initiation to execution. Personal Invites were sent to the other parishes for the Mother Teresa Novena by the youth. To refresh and energize the congregation, they had put up a snacks stall on all the 9 days of the Novena, 50 % of profit made was given to the church. Happiness shared is multiplied, On the occasion of Fr. Ramesh’s birthday the youth gave him a surprise after the Morning mass. There were some youth who also actively participated in the cleaning of the church for the feast mass.
On 5th September the youth offered the novena mass of mother Mary. The most fruit-bearing of them all was the paper drive conducted by them on the 10th of September, in order to raise funds for the youth group, which received very good response from the parishioner’s We thank father Ramesh Dsouza (Youth director) for helping us in the youth activities and his generous support in motivating us.
We pray that this spirit keeps going!
