The Parish Youth Apostolate (YPA) of St Dominic Parish organised the 11th Parish Youth Gathering (PYG11) on July 8. One hundred and fifteen youths attended the gathering themed Love vs Choice. The objective of this theme was to make the youths aware and understand the meaning of “love” in our faith. These days, youths stray away from their faith because they are searching for their soulmate.

The programme began with games, praise and worship. The St Dominic Altar Server committee led the opening prayer.

In the first session, the YPA team performed a sketch based on the reality of life of a youth facing a dilemma in making choices about their “Love Life.” After the sketch, the youths reflected based on the sketch, “What will you do in the same situation as the actor/actress?”

The youths were divided into groups to share on two questions: ‘Is my love life in God’s hand?’ and ‘What is destiny?’

The highlight of the session was given by Teodulfo Rosalia Jr @ Bing-Bing. He gave a deeper understanding about Love
Life and Choice. He also touched on the criteria in searching for our soulmate such as love, commitment and good communication. Through this session, the youth learned more about love and the choices that need to be made in life.

Rosaina, a member of YPA then gave a sharing on Amoris Laetitia. She further expounded on single life, married life and its fruits.

The PYG11 programme concluded with praise and worship led by Martinus Simon. He guided the youths to open their hearts to share their problems with God and to be closer to God through prayer. Each youth was given a piece of paper to write down their problems and to pray over them. After that, they hung their notes on the Tree of hope.

The programme ended with a group photo.
