The Persons Are Gifts (PAG) live-in camp for 15 to 17-year-olds from the Church of St Peter was held at the parish centre recently.

This comeback, after a hiatus of many years due to MCO was made possible with the assistance of Fr Ramon Borja SDB, youth ministers of the Archdiocese of Kuching and PAG graduates.

This camp was an opportunity for young people to discover themselves and others as gifts. Using the analogy of the gift, our participants learn that the person is more important than appearances and that people come in different shapes and sizes with their own unique characteristics and gifts.

Through the sessions, participants learnt to recognise their gifts, talents, and the people in their lives who are gifts. Participants also realised that every experience and encounter in their life shapes who they are.

At the end of the camp, we bring all that is learnt into the context of relationships: boy-girl, parent-child and God. Throughout the camp, we emphasised that each one is a gift that must be appreciated in relationships of love, acceptance and forgiveness. --Today’s Catholic
