Fr Gregory Chan, Director of the Archdiocesan Single Adults and Youth Office (ASAYO) unveiled the new ASAYO logo on Feb 1.

He explained the new logo, new identity and new look. He said that all the youths who attended the launching of the Year of the Youth would bring back a kit with two brochures and a banner of the Tahun Untuk Belia. These are to be used to share the Good News, to work together, to build their spirituality in their parishes. “Take the kit and share it with your friends, parish priest and move on from there.”

Jacinta Fernandez (ASAYO Pastoral Worker) explained the eight Reflections that the youths can share (from the kit) with youths in their own parishes.

These reflections are:

1. Be Ready (to always glorify God)
2. Be Inclusive (regardless of differences)
3. Be Thankful (for what you are)
4. Be Sustained (by the Word of God)
5. Be Joyful (even during difficult times)
6. Be Faithful (to each other)
7. Be Responsible (for one another)
8. Be Loving (especially to those who have hurt you).

She proposed that the youths carry out activities for the eight Reflections in each parish so that they can be united while reflecting and praying. She invited all youth representatives present to enrich themselves with the programmes so that they can be equipped to do more in their respective parishes.

Jacinta said the Church needs spring time and spring time for the young. Tahun Untuk Belia is for young people to be part of the decision making in the Church.

The various formations and pilgrimages organised by ASAYO Kuala Lumpur throughout the year were also highlighted so that the youth could sign up for them later. The programmes are geared towards World Youth Day (WYD) in Panama 2019 and Tahun Untuk Belia.

Gabriel briefed the youths on WYD 2019 Panama. The WYD is a tri-annual event, started by Pope John Paul II back in 1985.
