Focusing on the theme courage, the 1st Parish Youth Camp (PYC) of the Our Lady of the Assumption Parish of this town kicked off yesterday, April 28.
“Young people need to be courageous in times of God’s call,” said Raymart Capending, parish youth coordinator.
The event’s theme was taken from the book of prophet Isaiah, “Do not fear for I have summoned you by name, you are mine.” (43:1)
“PYC calls for the young people in the parish to serve the church with courage,” shared Annjill Dineros, one of the organizers.
Capending, who heads the Lavezares Catholic Youth Ministry (LCYM), added that this year’s theme is also anchored on the Church in the Philippines’ 2018 theme focusing on the clergy and consecrated persons.
Between 300 to 500 youth from the 26 barangays of Lavezares are participating in this year’s PYC.
The camp is taking place within the parish church’s grounds as well as in the town’s central elementary school. The delegates will stay for three days and two nights and will undergo a series of meaningful activities.
The organizers partnered with barangay officials, particularly the Committee on Youth and Sports Development, as well as the Barangay Pastoral Council, which shouldered the meals during the event, accommodations, and other forms of assistance.
