'Be His Soundtrack'

"What is the difference between Gospel music and Rock music?" This was one of the opening questions posed by a compere at the Diocesan Youth Centre's Rocklamation 2019. Held at the Don Bosco Centre for Learning campus grounds on January 12, the event brought together youth from all over Mumbai to celebrate music in its purest form, and live the Gospel message through song, dance and dynamic speeches.

Fr M. Gabriel, the Kurla Deanery Youth Coordinator, invoked God's blessings on the gathering. Bishop Barthol, in his opening video message, inspired the young audience to make the most of their talents particularly in this 'Year of the youth'. Chief Guest Fr Savio Silveira, sdb, Vice Provincial of Mumbai, emphasised the need to be proactive as youth to effect a positive social change, and thereby become 'God's Soundtrack'. Deacon Ivan Fernandes, the Diocesan Youth Coordinator, kept the audience hanging on to every word, as he animatedly emphasised that Jesus was still Alive and Present today, and we are called to be His Soundtrack!
