SINGAPORE – Around 90 confirmand youths from four parishes took part in the City District Youth Conference 2009 held on Saturday Sep 5 at Church of St. Teresa.
The theme of the conference was the World Youth Day 2009 theme given by the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI: “We have set our hope on the Living God” (1 Tim 4:10).
The confirmands from the parishes of Sts. Peter and Paul, St. Michael, St. Bernadette and St. Teresa took part in four workshops during the afternoon segment of the conference. Topics of the workshops included: Relationship and Family, Conversion Experience, Connecting With God, and My Purpose in Life.
The evening session was an Open Youth Rally attended by 200 people, including the confirmands, youths, catechists and parents. The Rally was held in the St. Teresa’s Auditorium, beginning with a testimony, followed by praise and worship.
Alfred Pang delivered a talk to the youths about finding hope in God and challenging them to be witnesses of hope. The rally concluded with a time of adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and songs of praises.
