MUMBAI, JUN 28, 2016: The Youth Ministry delegates of the Mumbai Province met at the Don Bosco Provincial House, Matunga on June 20, to discuss the several challenges in working with young people.
The meeting was animated by the DBYA-South Asia team and 42 participants were present. The three animators - Father Maria Charles, Father Antony Christy and Father Robert Simon - helped the Mumbai delegates to focus on youth and ministering to the youth.
The over-all wellbeing of youth in the province was looked at closely and that was followed by a discussion on the various challenges they face on a regular basis.
A SWOT Analysis of the Youth Ministry with specific focus on Holistic Youth Ministry, Lay Animation and Salesian Accompaniment concluded the seminar. Many questions were dealt with and the reflective discussions helped the participants critically evaluate their working methodology.
