QUEZON City, Nov. 18, 2012—The Christ the King parish youth assembly last night was called ‘Night Fever: All He’s Asking is One Night” and gathered about a hundred people to talk about vocation and pursuing a life of committed passion.
The youth assembly also aimed to prepare the parish youth for the upcoming parish fiesta, the Solemnity of Christ the King, on November 25 by talking about faith and true commitment to Christ.
In an interview, parish youth leader Joel Nava said the talk on living a life for Christ given by Fr. Peter Coching was “great”, adding, “I am very happy for what I am right now serving to Jesus Christ (sic) and I can bring the example to others.”
Nava, who often volunteers for the outreach program of the parish to Libis kids and youth, said he observed how the young people seemed to enjoy the experience, which included a Eucharistic hour.
Fr. Coching reminded the young people gathered, “Your presence here with Jesus makes it special.”
The youth were also encouraged to write down prayer intentions during the entire event, even while the Blessed Sacrament was exposed.
According to Nava, the nearing fiesta is a big parish celebration and will include activities like a medical mission, a procession, a Eucharistic hour and a special mass to be headed by Cubao Bishop Honesto Ongtioco, D.D. for the Solemnity of Christ the King this coming week.
The event was organized by the parish youth ministry, headed by Ponzi Alampay. [Nirva’ana Ella Delacruz]
