Jesus Youth Professionals Ministry

The Jesus Youth Members(KYCT, Ernakulam  Zone and Professional Ministry) gathered at POC  on 11th October 2012 for the inauguration of Faith year. The inauguration started with Holy mass, which was celebrated by  Fr.Abraham Pallivathukkal, Fr.Joel, Fr.Anand and Fr.Shibu. After the celebration of  Holy Mass there was a  lighting of the lamp which conveyed the a feeling in everybody's heart that “our faith should be fired again in our hearts if it is dimmed, we are supposed to light the faith in ourselves and our fellow beings…’ In the coming year we need to plan and do initiatives to deepen the faith in our prayer groups and to bring faith to many others in who have never known/experienced Jesus..

There was a talk by Rev.Dr.Stephen Alathara.. The key points which he highlighted in his sharing was:

  1. The synod at Rome is discussing  on the topic ‘New Evangelization With Transmission of Christian Faith’

Three things to be done in the faith year are:

      1. Give thanks for the faith we experience.
      2. Deepen your faith with increasing your knowledge on faith(Bible, CCC, Council Documents), by experiencing faith and practising faith.
      3. Support the church in its activities to deepen faith.

            There he specified the role of Jesus Youth and Church’s expectations about our movement.

  1. In 1967,Pope Paul 6 has declared the ‘year of FAITH’ when he felt that faith is being questioned/dimmed when about 38,000 catholic priests gave away    their priesthood. So now also there are different scenarios where faith is dimmed/questioned, even though todays scenario is very different from 1967.
  2. There are around 55 lakh Catholics in Kerala and the whole population of our state  is about 3 crore 50 lakh ,which means we have to definitely transmit the Christian Faith to  many of non catholics/non Christians through new evangelization .And there are possibilities where Youth alone can be reached to spread the faith.
  3. He also requested JY movement to support all the initiatives in this ‘Faith Year’ along with Church through our prayers and talents.

Later Joby (KYCT Cordinator) talked about ‘Year of Faith Initiaves’ with the help of  Sajan (Professional ministry coordinator) and Shinu(Ernakulam Zone coordinator)

‘A Day With Christ ‘ is an initiative of Jesus Youth Professional Ministry Professional’s sit in front of the Most Holy Eucharist throughout the year as part of an intercession towards the faith year .

‘Faith Year Rosary’(Rosary blessed by Pope)  would be travelling from Kasargod to various places in Kerala and it is an opportunity to grow in faith through Mother Mary .These are the new initiates of Faith Year. Later small talks were given by Fr.Joel and Fr.Shibu.

The FAITH YEAR PRAYER was led by Fr.Abraham Pallivathukkal  who emphasized on the point one hour is kept for serious reading of Bible/CCC/Council Documents which would help us in this faith year.

The event was concluded by distributing Sweets to all who came for the ceremony.
