Youth Convention and New Church Blessing in Ranlamri, Borduria Parish
It was a very eventful two days on 15 and 16 of May, 2014 for the youth of Ranlamrih Mission stations of Borduria Parish as they came together for the first time for an animation. The Diocesan Youth Team was invited by Fr. Pradeep, the Parish Priest, to animate the youth in this region as they ‘have not had any animation programme’ in his own words. The Youth Team of the Diocese responded to the Parish Priest call and visited and stayed in the village animating and motivating the youth of the village. The Youth were very enthusiastic and eager to learn something new. The animators and resource persons kept the youth active for the entire two days, teaching new hymns and prayers and motivating them to choose the right path and to bring about changes in their own region which lacks leaders. ‘The time of your parents are over. It is your time. The whole world is ahead of you, looking at you for various answers to the problems it faces today. The choice is yours – you can either become part of the existing problems or find solutions to them’, the animators told the youth.
