Thousands of young people participate in family catechetical congress

.- On February 19 more than 4,000 young people from different countries gathered together with Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani, Archbishop of Lima, for the inauguration of a congress for family catechesis youth leaders.  The theme of the congress is: “Young man, get up, listen be nourished by the Eucharist, and set out with Jesus.”

Organized by the Family Catechesis Movement, the event is designated to emphasize the importance of catechetical leaders and to strengthen their mission as a bridge between parents and children.

Among those scheduled to attend the event include Cardinal Tarsicio Bertone, Archbishop of Genoa, Msgr. Alberto Campos, Apostolic Vicar of St. Joseph of the Amazons, and Bishop Angel Francisco Simon Piorno of Chimbote, Peru.

The young catechists will be attending talks on formation and will have the chance to interact with leaders from other parts of the world to share their experiences.
