Posted By: Chris Costuya On:

MANILA, Oct. 18, 2011—World Youth Day pilgrims from the diocese of Cubao will hold their traditional post-WYD Outreach at the Medium Security Compound of the New Bilibid Prison in Muntinlupa City on October 30, 2011.

Pilgrims of the said diocese attended the WYD 2008 in Sydney and WYD 2011 in Spain.

The event, dubbed as “Walk with Us: Youth’s Journey of Faith beyond Boarders” is organized by the Ministry for Youth Affairs-Cubao (MYA).

The website of MYA-Cubao (mycubao.org), says that the event will be a celebration of faith, both of the youth coming from the free society as well as of those who are in prison.

According to the organizers, “it will also be a testament of communion which has been best experienced during the days of World Youth Day.”

For this event, MYA-Cubao ties up with the Philippine Jesuit Prison Service (PJPS) at the New Bilibid Prison.

The event is also open to non-WYD Pilgrims.

For individuals and organization who wish to participate, you may contact Ms. Len at 723-5113 to 18 loc. 517 or e-mail MYA-Cubao at mycubao@gmail.com. Participation fee is P650.00 which includes transportation, lunch, token for inmates and a t-shirt. (Jandel Posion)
