Archbishop Peter Machado of Bangalore on January 17 urged young Catholics to assume leadership roles in society.

The prelate wants the youth to give their best to society by entering politics, bureaucracy, various government sectors and other organizations.

The archbishop was addressing some 50 young women and men from the Cathedral deanery comprising 13 parishes.

The Leadership Enhancement and Attitude Development (LEAD) program was organized by Yuva Chethana (Youth Consciousness), the Bangalore Archdiocesan Youth Commission, at Palana Bhavan (Pastoral Centre).

Salesian Father Anil D’Sa, the youth director of the Archdiocese, his assistant Father Sampath, and Father Sandeep, director of Redemptorist Youth Ministry, were present for the program.

Father D’Sa animated the session for the leaders with relevant and meaningful activities to get to know each other and prepare an action plan for the deanery taking suggestions from the youth.

The youth leaders voiced their opinion on the current situation of young people and suggested various ways to make them active and vibrant.

A deanery level committee was set up with one representative from each parish and an action plan was drawn to take forward the aspirations and suggestions of the youth.

The participants said they found the program meaningful and expressed the need of having it regularly to sustain their enthusiasm and empower the youth.–– Matters India
