The Future of Nepal Church

Five hundred vibrant and energetic Nepal Catholic youth from far and wide started to arrive from October 4 onwards for the October 5 – 9 convention held at Navjyoti School, Dharan. It is a joy and a pleasant surprise to have the youth representing from every parish in Nepal along with their animators. On Oct. 5, after lunch the group started the procession with a big mission cross from the basketball court to the conference hall. Rev. Father Boniface Tigga, SJ, the Dean of East Nepal celebrated the Eucharistic at 1:30 pm. After Mass there was a colorful cultural program with dances from various regions. In spite of the heavy rain, the youth seem to be fully participating in the various activities and programs and enjoy being together. ‘Baptized and Sent’ is the theme for the convention. Please pray for the success of this convention and for the small Catholic Church in Nepal.
