SAN PABLO City, Sept. 28, 2012?A Catholic bishop applauded the young people of San Pablo diocese in their efforts to gather youth leaders from different parishes and organizations in the diocese where they discussed issues concerning youth and faith.
In his homily for the closing mass of the 1st diocesan youth congress, San Pablo Bishop Leo Drona, SDB, said that the youth are important to the church and is an effective force in building a strong community.
The bishop also congratulated the youth ministry and the people working behind for the success of the congress.
The youth congress is another initiative of the diocese to call on the young to rekindle the faith and take on the challenge of keeping the fire of faith burning through reaching out to their lukewarm brethren by means of evangelization.
More than two hundred youth leaders in the diocese attended the 1st diocesan youth congress last September 22 and 23 in this city, with the theme “Activate the Faith”. (Jandel Posion with reports from Glenn Torrecampo)
