RCAM holds ‘youth month’

Posted By: admin On:


MANILA, September 17, 2014—This September, the Archdiocese of Manila (RCAM)’s Archdiocesan Commission on Youth (ACY) invites young people to take part in a series of youth-oriented activities it has prepared in celebration of the Archdiocesan Youth Month 2014 (AYMO).

Themed “Brave Saints and Heroes: We Are”, this important annual event which officially kicked off on September 6, is observed on different levels—parish/campus/dormitory/ organization, ministry, and archdiocesan—and is in keeping with the Church’s call for a renewed participation of the Filipino laity.

According to Fr. Ramón Jade L. Licuanan, ACY commissioner, the Year of the Laity reminds the lay faithful of their essential role in the Church.

While the Second Vatican Council (Vatican II) has called for a “renewal in the life and role of the laity”, he laments that there is still a fundamental lack of understanding of lay vocation and its role in the Church’s mission.

“All of us are called to individually participate in the work of the Church by living a truly Christian life. We are each called to spread the Gospel through both word and deed to friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, and even the strangers we may meet in our daily lives,” said Licuanan.

He explained that this form of participation “can contribute greatly to a more extensive spreading of the Gospel, indeed it can reach as many places as there are daily lives of individual members of the lay faithful.”
