Just like anyone of us, Mary, the Mother of God, has once become a youth. Thus, the theme for this year’s Marian Youth Camp (MYC) in celebration of the feast of the Immaculate Conception and closing of the Year of the Youth, was tagged: Mary… how to be Youth.
Sr. Mary Joannie Bolisay, SPC and Sr. Mari Jonna Rosales,SPC who were former active youth leaders in their parishes before entering the convent facilitated the deepening of the theme. Fr. Paolo Pirlo, SHMI also delivered a talk about Mary as Mother and Model of the youth.
Paulinians showcased their being Gifted, Beloved and Empowered Youths in the Praise and Worship and Marian Song Fest. The spirit-filled and youthful night gathering ended with a Taize Prayer Service.
Marian dawn procession and Eucharistic celebration at St. Andrew’s Cathedral concluded the camp the following day.
