Silam Catholic Youth Apostolate (SCYA) organised a Youth Alpha Camp Oct 6-8. A total of 53 participants from Our Lady of Pilar Silam and St Nicholas, Tampenau, attended this camp at Borneo Paradise Eco Farm Resort, Kunak.

The objective of the Youth Alpha is to bring youth closer to God and to build a relationship between them and Jesus, and also to strengthen their faith.

The camp consisted of ten sessions: (Who is Jesus? Why did Jesus die for us? How confident am I in my faith? How and why do I pray? Why and how do I read the Bible? Who is the Holy Spirit? What does the Holy Spirit do? How can I be filled with the Holy Spirit? How do I overcome evil?

There were also group sharings, praise and worship, healing sessions, Faith in Action (FIA), and Journey to Unity (Amazing Race).

After that, Fr Marcellinus Pongking gave a session on confession, examination of conscience and the meaning of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Fr Simon Kontou celebrated the Eucharistic Mass. In his homily, he said, through this Alpha camp, our youths have changed to be better persons and stronger in their faith. Praise to God!
