Catholic meet in Samoa pushes youth towards the word of God

Catholic youth from around the world are gathering this week in Samoa to fellowship in the word of God.

It’s every four years that Catholics around the world congregate to network in the gospel.

The aim is to encourage the younger generations to make a difference in their families and in their communities.

The youth use spiritual performances using dance singing, as an effective way of sharing the gospel to each other.

Prime Minister, Tuilaepa Lupesoliai Sailele Malielegaoi opened the conference in front the government building to start off the holy week for the Catholics on Monday.

Catholic youth from United States of America, New Zealand, Australia, Tokelau, American Samoa and Samoa are among the delegates present at this event.

As proud as any other parent would be, Iosefa Taefu leader and a priest to the Catholic congregation of Solosolo is delighted with the feedback from their youth.

“In my own experience, I always look forward to this opportunity because it is a chance to rejuvenate our young people spiritually.”

“I have to say that this program is indeed effective here in Solosolo Catholic youth as shown in their full participation and performance,” says Iosefa Taefu.

A member of Solosolo youth, Joseph Faapu’e tells how amazed he is with this week’s routine.

“I love participating in such practise because it gives me new ideas on how to motivate the young people in my area," said Joseph Faapu’e.

The closing ceremony will be held on Sunday.
