On 5 March at our St Mary's Cathedral Basilicamore than 300 youths across Bulawayo communed together, participating and partaking in their Theme Launching Mass celebrated by our Archbishop Alex Thomas.
The theme "My journey in revitalizing my life in Christ" was in line with the current synod that calls for Communion, Participation and Mission.
Father James Batsirai, our Youth Spiritual Director, gave the introductions and the welcome remarks. The young people were the lead choir of the day.
Remarkable was the presence of a youth sign language interpreter, assisting those with hearing impairments to be fully chartered for, during the entire activity.
Archbishop Alex Thomas in his sermon challenged the youth to know the tools they need in order to be revitalized with Christ, especially the Bible. He blessed a newly elected Archdiocese of Bulawayo Youth Executive Committee. Our new youth ministry coordinators, sister Yeyani FMDM and Miss Debra Gova, were also officially presented.
The youths were also given the platform to interact with all the priests that had graced the event, for socializing and counselling. Father Limukani unpacked what the Synod is all about, laying a foundation for a synodal session that the youths engaged in.
