AHMEDNAGAR, JANUARY 18, 2011: January 16, 2011, was a day with the Lord at St John’s Church, Bhingar. The first session was conducted by Bro. Jesu Robinson by means of two Learning games on Values and integration into a group, how it takes place. Then a talk on the unconditional love of God in Jesus by Fr Bastin Thomas followed. This led up the group towards the Community Rite of Reconciliation and individual and personal confessions.

The participants were personally prayed over on the heads by the Preacher and sent on a mission to proclaim the kingdom of God. After a filling meal, Fr. Michael Bansode, the convenor of the recollection held a group discussion and sharing session for eight groups on the theme: What does being a Christian mean to me? Reports then followed and the day ended with the Holy Mass.

It was a day well spent in union with the Lord and every one felt relieved and empowered to go back to life and begin again.

In all sixty youth participated comprising of participants from St Johns Bhingar, St Anne’s Nagar, Don Bosco Savedi, and finally from Ghodegaon parish, a group of six boys with Fr Allwyn, their youth animator were present. The youth felt that they were now more peaceful and renewed in facing their daily routines and duties. All agreed that they needed to witness to faith; love, service and sacrifice are needed to be successful Christians and true disciples in today’s world.
