Archbishop John Wong of Kota Kinabalu Archdiocese encouraged thousands of youth participating in the virtual Sabah Youth Day 5 (V-SYD5) to be creative evangelisers, especially in this time of pandemic.

He said this in a video message to the youth as the official host of V-SYD5 on July 19.

He exhorted the youth to not be discouraged although they were only meeting virtually for the biggest celebration of Catholic faith in Sabah, but to be more creative and have more initiative to reach out to one another.

The prelate suggested that they maximise the use of modern technology. “Keep in touch via online meetings by organising formations and help others, especially those who are affected by the COVID-19. Not only meetings but also gather for fellowship online to encourage one another,” suggested the prelate.

Nowadays, the youth are engaged in all kinds of digital technology but he also encouraged them to keep in touch with the people around them.

“As Catholic youth in this modern era, keep in touch with reality. Dear youth, use your talents for the glory of God so that you are able to move on, no matter what era you are in,” he said.

The Archbishop also encouraged the youth, saying “Be convinced that the Lord is with you, He will guide you. Be convinced in your faith, be a true and active witness of Christ. Be on fire for God.”

He advised the youth, “After SYD5, go back to your parishes. Continue to be the salt and light wherever you are. Be creative evangelisers!”––CS
