The youth in the society should be able to react when some issues or problems arise in the society in which they live, said Bp. Joseph Pandaraserril, Chairman of KCBC Commission for youth while inaugurating the swearing in ceremony of the KCYM office bearers for the activity year 2011. The dream of making India a bright and prosperous country can only be fulfilled if the youth become the voice of the poor and the suppressed, said Bishop.
The meeting in which more than 40 youth representatives took part was held on 2011 January 30 at the KCYM State Committee Office in Ernakulam. The action plan for the activity year 2011, with the theme ‘Catholic Youth for Universal Brotherhood’, was drafted in the meeting. The main highlight of the meeting was the decision to begin a state wide campaign and various other activities against the increasing alcoholism in the state.
Former KCYM state president Deepak Cherkkott, State General Secretary, State director Fr. Jaison Kollannur and Asst. director Sr. Ancy Antony addressed the gathering in the meeting in which State President Aji Daniel Presided.
