PH YOUTH JOINS THE WORLD YOUTH EVENT

The PDDM Sisters, the young ones in formation, and invited young people joined and represented the Philippines in the World Youth Online Event held last November 25, 2023.

Organized in view of their Centenary of foundation this coming February 10, 2024, the PDDM Sisters in different continents gathered young people for an online encounter.

The different groups organized in different parts of the world connected online and together, explored the theme, "In the footsteps of Jesus, Listen, Welcome and Announce the Word of Jesus who tells us, KEEP MOVING FORWARD".  Testimonies, stories and music were shared by young people.

In the Philippines, the youth gathering started at 5:00PM, two hours before the online encounter. Sr. M. Magdalene Magallanes, the new Provincial Superior of the Philippine-Taiwan-Hong Kong Province, welcomed the participants. Indeed, the evening was full of fellowship, food and fun enjoyed by the young people present at St. Paul Multi-purpose Hall of Alberione House in Antipolo City.

In Davao, the community of sisters also gathered some youth at Divine Master convent and joined the online event. The formation group of the Daughters of St. Paul in Pasay City and the seminarians of the Society of St. Paul also participated.

May God who sowed the seed of vocation he desires for each of the young person present continue to nurture and bring it to fruition.
