Mazenod Youth, a ministry of the Province of Colombo, has found another new way to share the gospel with young persons. For some time now, we have been conducting different types of programmes, sessions, workshops and seminars with youth, children and adults by using videos, music and other experiences.

As our latest venture, our team invited youth to join us in preaching novenas in parishes. It was really inspirational and touching. The youth are not at all shy about sharing their experiences and talents in preaching novenas. Using Power Point presentations, songs and hymns, together with Bible quotations, short dramas and real life experiences, they bring the faithful closer to God.

We call this preaching experience with youth a “Mini-Mazenod-Mission.” The latest “Mini-Mazenod-Mission” was conducted in the Wanathawilluwa parish where the newly assigned parish priest is Fr. Prabhath SANJAYA. There were seven Mazenod Youth members who came from various places to share the Word of God with the people. (Fr. S. Randil FERNANDO)
