Youth Outreach – DARE TO BELIEVE!

On June 10, 2018, the Legion of Mary, Senatus of Mumbai organised a programme for the Youth of Borivli Deanery. 185 youth participated in the Youth Outreach programme 'Dare to Believe'. We were warmly welcomed by the Youth Legionaries of Orlem and began with an ice-breaker that helped us to interact with one another.

Deacon Ivan Fernandes, the main resource person, invited all the Youth to 'Dare to Believe! He began with the three Ds:

D - To decide and make a firm decision to follow Jesus.

D - To discipline our lives and make Christ the way of our life.

D - To DARE which would automatically happen if we followed the first 2 Ds


National Youth Retreat

"You are a chosen generation" (1 Peter 2:9) was the theme chosen for the 38th National Youth Retreat held at Divine Retreat Centre, Kerala. The week-long retreat (May 20-26, 2018) was a refreshing spiritual realisation that God has truly been with us throughout our lives and has chosen us for a purpose. Gospel bands from places like Goa, Bangalore and Chennai energised us with their action songs and led us through praise and worship. Testimonies from various people who had been touched by the Lord in their sinful past filled us with inspiration. Brother Mario Joseph spoke about the various sins and temptations the youth face in today's modern world. Jude Antoine, a Malaysian missionary, spoke on God's love, Sexual Purity and the Sacrament of Marriage. Brother Colin Calmiano, an acclaimed speaker, spoke on Sin, Media and Love, Marriage and Sex. >>>
