Youth Ministry in action

The Parish Youth Council of Our Lady of Visitation Church, Nerul, Navi Mumbai comprises 28 members (2-3 youth per Neighbourhood Youth Group (NYG)) and meets on the third Sunday of every month. We have 11 NYGs that are merged into four groups which meet once a month. We also have eight Parish Youth Animators who meet once a month to review and plan activities.

Annual Events

1. Parish Youth Day
2. Vacation Bible Joy
3. Outreach during Advent and Lent
4. Picnic
5. Sports Day, in collaboration with the SCCs.

This Year’s Calendar of Events:

•Parish Youth Day: ‘Unite and Ignite; together, we are lit’ was observed on September 30, 2018; around 70 youth participated. We had a fun day, played lots of team-building games and listened to our very own mind-blowing Band performing Gospel songs. The youth enjoyed the talk on relationships and careers; they could relate easily to these topics. The day ended with a Treasure Hunt and Jam Session.

•Games / Food Stalls: Each NYG puts up a game stall /food stall every Sunday by rotation to encourage unity among the NYGs, and also to fund our Picnic and Outreach programmes.

•Deanery Level Activities: We make it a point to participate in the Deanery level activities i.e. Deanery Youth and Sports Day.
