Youth Christian Group’s Revival ‘Important’!
A group of 13 Young Christian Students (YCS) members, representing four schools, planned, organised and facilitated a one-day workshop at Christ the King parish in Orlando East, Soweto, to discuss and draw up plans for 2019—including difficult and sensitive social issues.
In line with the YCS constitution and its vision of a “safe, secure and healthy community for young and all people”, they envisaged how to bring about constructive change.
Issues discussed included violence against women and girls, inculturation, and young peoples’ mental health in their schools and communities.
“Young Christian Students is known for using the See-Judge-Act method in tackling problems,” YCS organiser Fr Mokesh Morar said.
“That helps them build their own leadership for the benefit of their communities and society at large, in line with the Gospel and the social teachings of the Church.
“I thank all YCS members, parents, teachers, volunteers, the clergy, school principals and others who support the revival of this important ecumenical youth movement in Gauteng and the rest of the South Africa,” Fr Morar said.
