Young Apostles of Christ

YAC1 1Last 21st June 2014 we organised a Seminar for the YAC at Sigcineni. There were 43 members present for the programme. It was  a wonderful day. Every body was extremely happy with the programme.

The Catechist on behalf of the Church members expressed his joy and appreciation to the sisters and to Fr. Joseph, who came for the celebration of the Mass.

Different issues were discussed on how to go about with the current situation of the youth as YAC and the Church at large. One of the important question was given to the groups to discuss and after the discussion the leader of the different groups  presented the outcome of the discussion  to the assembly. The following was the question and answers.

YAC 1Sr.Theresa and Sr.Dimaya tried their best to clear all their doubts regarding our faith so that they help others. We believe that young people have potentials to change the society. Let’s work with them.
Motto: “Light of Christ, let it Shine.”
