We the Redemptorist Youth of Tenali Parish, India, are very happy and excited to share this news with all of You....
We had an excellent and enjoyable time with all the Youth including the youth from our out-stations parishes.
The CCBI (Conference of Catholic Bishops, India) and The TCBC (Telugu Catholic Bishops Council) had announced 5th August, as the Youth Day. As per it's directives, we celebrated the Youth Day on the 5th of August.
As the feast of St. Alphonsus is celebrated on 1st August. In order to give the Youth Day a Redemptorist flavour, we named it as "Alphonsian Youth Day".
Around 100 youth participated in the event. The day began with a Eucharistic Celebration presided by Rev. Fr. Vijayanand which made the occasion gracious.
We received T-shirts which had the logo of Our Mother of Perpetual Help on the front and the Redemptorist Saintly family on the other side. It was gifted to all of us. We love you Redemptorists! God bless you all !
There after we played a variety of sports. Meeting and mingling with the youth of our Parish was an enriching experience. We hope to have more of this kind in order to strengthen our faith and deepen our sense of unity as one body to the universal church.
We thank all the parishioners for their valuable prayers and continuous support to the youth of our parish.
Strong in faith, rejoicing in hope, burning with charity, on fire with zeal, in humility of heart and persevering in prayer, Redemptorists as apostolic men and genuine disciples of Saint Alphonsus follow Christ the Redeemer with hearts full of joy
