Mangalore: A convention for the youth of Pompei Youngsters Club (PYC) Kaikamba was held at the Parish Hall on Sunday, the 28th of August 2011. The Liturgy was conducted by the youth. Rev. Dr Ronald Cutinha, Director of Samanvaya Mangalore was the main celebrant of the Holy Eucharist.

Rev. Fr Paul Rego, Parish Priest of Pompei Church, inaugurated and wished the function a grand success. He also advised the youth to become role models for the parishioners and the society by gaining tips from the training to follow forthwith. Honorary member of the club Mr Alwyn Peris from Kaikamba was the Chief Guest of the programme. In his address, he advised the youth to imbibe maximum knowledge from the training to become responsible citizens of the locality.


Rev. Dr Ronald Cutinha took over the podium for training on ‘Motivation of the Youth’ and addressed the gathering on who is youth, the importance of youth power, present challenges for the youth, guidelines to the youth, etc. with power point presentation. The programme being of their choice, young audience was absolutely attentive throughout the session. They were encouraged to make opportunities and were made to realize that they are in a position to inspire young people to help their communities to take their destinies in their own hands in the direction of shaping a better future. He called on the youth to acquire required education, improve and make use of the inborn talents, become good leaders in the society by setting good example, take part in religious activities of their parish and most importantly, protect themselves from the vices and help others involved in it to get out of it. There was group discussion and question/answer session to ascertain that the audience disperses without any queries.

ICYM Central President Mr Vishal Fernandes, Animator Mr Santhosh Lobo, Parish Council Vice President Mr Romans Lobo and Secretary Mr Richard Fernandes were on the dais. Ms Reshma Castelino conducted games for the gathered youth and concluded the day’s programme with a Treasure Hunt. About 105 youth of the Parish took part in the programme and felt it was extremely refreshing.
