Dadam Parish Youth Convention at Chinkoi
“It was great to see our young boys and girls praying sincerely for three days in one place”, said Mr. Akham Wangnow of Chinkoi village summarizing the three-day Dadam Parish youth convention held at Chinkoi village from 6 to 8 April 2016.
About 150 youth from the four villages of Dadam Parish were animated for three days at the village Church in Chinkoi by Rev. Sr, Regina MSMHC, the North East Regional Youth Director, Guwahati and Fr. Felix. The youth were divided into small groups for better animation and were involved in workshops and group discussions on topics pertaining to them. The Youth enjoyed the sessions on Church History, Jubilee of Mercy and Sacraments. The Eucharistic Procession and Adoration on the last day gave a fitting conclusion to the Convention.
“I feel so happy to have come for this convention. Unlike previous conventions, I not only sang and danced but also prayed and prayed really well”, said Wakhian Hakhun from Chinkoi village, speaking about his experience. The willingness of the youth to learn more was evident from their being punctual for all the sessions. “I am happy to learn many new things from this convention. I particularly enjoyed the session on Church History”, said Monica Nokbi from Hukhan village.
The youth in Chinkoi village had worked hard round-the-clock to make the event memorable for all the youth from Hukhan, Mokhtua and Dadam villages. The village leaders and the women group of Chinkoi village too helped the youth with accommodation and food. Fr. Titus OFM Cap, the Parish Priest thanked all the youth for their active participation in the event and heaped praise on the youth from Chinkoi for their hard work and sacrifice to make the event memorable for all.
