KOTA KINABALU: A total of  2,594 youths from the three Arch/ dioceses in Sabah (Kota Kinabalu,  Keningau and Sandakan) have  registered for the Virtual Sabah  Youth Day-5 (SYD5), July 19-23. 

Here is the breakdown of the  participants; 1,464 participants  (Archdiocese of Kota Kinabalu),  674 participants (Diocese of Keningau), 430 participants (Diocese  of Sandakan) and seven other  participants from Sarawak (Archdiocese of Kuching and Miri Diocese).

The Main Organising Team  (MOT) and Sub-MOT organisers  comprising 171 people brought  the total number of entries to over  2,700 people. Also included were  16 entries from the clergy and religious.

This unprecedented number of  youths who have registered even  though it will be held virtually,  shows that the youths in Sabah really missed this gathering and are  looking forward to this important  event.

Since 2004, Sabah Youth Day  is one of the main events for all  Catholic youths in Sabah to gather.  However, due to the COVID-19  pandemic, the SYD5 which was  supposed to have been held in August last year had to be postponed.

By maintaining the theme “Here  am I, the servant of the Lord; let  it be with me according to your  word.” Luke 1:38, the organisers  learned from Mother Mary to remain submissive to God and say  yes to His will in any situation of  life.

This year’s SYD5 will be held  in a new normal where all participants will follow the SYD5 online  through their laptops or mobile  phones from wherever they are.

Currently, preparations for the  SYD5 are in full swing. Despite  being bound by the new norms/ SOPs, they remain in high spirits,  especially those who are involved  in the sessions and also the performers.

The COVID-19 pandemic has not broken the spirits or the  faith of the youths. 

SYD5 will be from 5.30pm  to 9.00pm daily during the fiveday event. Some sessions will be  conducted through the Zoom app  which is open to registered participants only.

Wait for SYD5 virtually and  visit their website, Facebook and  Youtube for updates.
