Laguna- The Canossa Academy was jam-packed by over 700 youth from Laguna during the Couples for Christ – Youth for Family and Life (CFC-YFL) Area Youth Conference (AYC) last August 27 at Calamba City.
With this year’s theme – WAGI: Buhay Kay Kristo, the conference was filled with youth and their Jesus Christ-testimonies. Bishop Buenaventura Famadico stressed the sacrifice of carrying the cross in order to follow Christ’s path.
Activities like ISikat, where each chapter had presented their God-given talents; interactive booths; dyad; exposition of the Holy Sacrament; and making a cross using thumb marks made WAGI AYC a Christ-Centered event.
The sessions were truly remarkable. “I want less of my self-centeredness and more of You being centered in my life,” Trenzy Rombaoa said during One in Christ session. Meanwhile, Jayjay Tropicales explained that every one’s mission is to build Christ’s kingdom on Earth during One in Mission session.
On the other hand, Bro. Harley Piga, SVD said in his message after the exposition: “The language of God is silence. Ang buhay natin ay buhay na dapat nakatuon sa katahimikan dahil dito natin makikita ang Panginoon,”
The recently concluded AYC is the eight area youth conference that has been organized by YFL Laguna.
