Trobada d’animadors de joves i recés de Quaresma

Some twenty animators and youths of the archdiocese participated on Saturday 16th March, in this meeting and the recess of Quaresma organised by the Delegation for Youth of the archdiocese and conducted by Mn Bruno Berchez, delegate for youth of the Archbishopric of Barcelona. Mn Berchez during the first part of the meeting spoke of the need to transmit and communicate the good news to the young in a context were a diversity of paths exists with a thousand possibilities to choose from. Evangelisation is no more than Jesus asked of us. We should be aware that that we are unable to transmit the good news of Evangelism if we have not first found for ourselves the Lord, if we have not experimented this encounter which gives a new horizon, he added.

During the meeting, Mn. Bérchez gave some clues, thirteen ingredients for the new evangelisation which could be applied in juvenile pastorals, each one in its own ambit. Finally he suggested resources and activities and seven plates of the new evangelisation  which are being carried out in Barcelona and other diocese of Cataluña and which count with good acceptance on  the part of adolescents and youths, such as Café Youcat, Solidarity Week, The Alpha course and Life Teen.

Following a pause was held the recess for Quaresma during which apart from the Gospel of the Samaritan and the sending forth the mission of the twelve apostles together with questions on personal meditation, the youths were able to pray and reflect on conversion and the call.
