|RE:||EUCHARISTIC YOUTH MOVEMENT: “FESTIVAL OF VOCATIONS” on November 30 to December 1, 2018|
Reverend Monsignori and Fathers,
Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
The Eucharistic Youth Movement (EYM) would like to invite your youth leaders to participate in their activity for this year entitled, “Festival of Vocations”, to be held on November 30 to December 1, 2018 (Friday to Saturday) at Angels’ Hill Retreat and Formation Center in Tagaytay City . As the name implies, the Eucharist Youth Movement is designed to deepen our young people’s knowledge and appreciation of the Eucharist and teach them to unite with Jesus in their daily lives. This year, selected speakers are invited to conduct three major conferences, which correspond to the festival’s theme, “In the heart of the Church, my vocation is Love” – St. Therese of Lisieux.
An apostolate of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network, the EYM is not an organization but a mode of formation or a school of prayer that promotes deep friendship with Jesus among young people. Where there is a thriving EYM in the parish, there is a visible and palpable devotion to the Eucharist among the youth as can be seen not only in their active participation in the Holy Mass but also in their vigil before the Blessed Sacrament, and increased attendance in the Holy Hour.
While the Festival is being initiated by the EYM coordinators and animators of the diocese, we would also like to invite all youth of the diocese to participate in this event. It is an opportune time for them to experience the beauty of Eucharistic spirituality. Our beloved Bishop, Most Rev. Jesse E, Mercado, D.D., highly recommends this “festival” for youth leaders as fitting introduction to the celebration of the Year of the Youth 2019.
Attached for your information is the detailed schedule of activities. Registration fee is at One Thousand Two Hundred Pesos (P1,200/pax), inclusive of everything. Cost of transportation shall be for the account of the participants. For other inquiries, you may contact: Jiesle Paelmao (0919-8923100) or Joy Angeles (0922-8179284).
