Unity among young people encouraged
Together as one.
That was the theme of a two-day camp for youth members of the Catholic Church – Upolu Vicarage Central.
Held at Don Bosco during the weekend, more than fifty church members attended the camp.
Father Petelo Vito told the Samoa Observer that the main purpose of the camp is for youth members to come together as one family in Christ.
“Not only that but for them to learn more about the relationship with one another,” Father Vito said.
“This is our second annual camp. It’s all about coming together as one to strengthen faith in our Heavenly Father and in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.”
Looking at what’s happening today, Father Vito said the church needs to rise up to help young people.
“Young people need the church - they need Christ, as leaders in church, families and everywhere in the world we need to give young people the opportunity to be followers of Jesus Christ.
“For He is the only answer for the world today, He’s our only refuge and strength.”
The eleven parishes within the Vicarage Central region include, Toamua, Lepea, Tulaele, Vaiusu, Sinamoga, Palisi, Tama’ita’i o le Mauga, Vailima, Vaoala, Malololelei and Moamoa.
A mass at Sinamoga Catholic Church ended the two-day camp yesterday.
