SANDAKAN – Thirty youths from Tungku, Felda and Kunak participated the YLC Club 13-14 Sep 2014 at St Gabriel Tungku, Lahad Datu, while 20 youths from Telupid attended the YLC Club at St Martin’s Church, Telupid on Sep 27-28.
Youth Leaders’ Camp (YLC), designed for youth leaders in the Diocese of Sandakan, is usually held in the early part of the year.
A follow-up program called YLC Club, held twice a year, is meant for youth leaders who have attended previous YLC to meet up, listen and to share their experiences during their journey as youth leaders in the church.
It is also a platform for them to strengthen and refresh their faith and enrich their personal relationship with Jesus. It is a joint program between the Diocesan Youth Apostolate and the Parish Youth Apostolate.
The essence of the YLC Club this time is based on the gist of Bishop Julius’ message to the young leaders during YLC-3 held in St Dominic, Lahad Datu, ‘a call to be effective and authentic young Christian leaders’.
This follow-up will allow the youth leaders to reflect and share their joys and sorrows in serving their peers in their parish.
After listening to their sharing and their needs, the Diocesan Youth Office will map out the program for YLC-4 scheduled on Feb 25 to Mar 01 in 2015 at St Martin’s Church, Telupid.
YLC Club in Holy Trinity, Tawau and St Mary’s Cathedral, Sandakan would be held in the later part of October 2014. – Dospo DS
