IVE Youth Day 2017
More than 600 youth coming from different parts of the Philippines attended our IVE Youth Day 2017, held on 12 February in Lipa City, Batangas, Philippines. Conferences were given by various speakers to enrich our youth. There were sport games and performances which everybody enjoyed a lot. The moment of prayerful rosary procession, confession, Eucharistic Adoration and prayer, and the Holy Mass also gave our youth a moment to encounter the love of God.
Our aim of organising this Youth Day is to allow our youth to be close to God, and to know that they can live their youth religiously. It is also a great time for them to broaden their vision by meeting different youth and religious (priests, seminarians and sisters) here.
On this great day we were happy also to have 11 lay persons being accepted to be our Third Order (Secular) member of the Religious Family of the Incarnate Word. We give thanks to God for all the blessing to us, and especially to these new members of our Religious Family, that they may be salt of the earth and light of the world.
