Holy Family Parish in Njiro organizes youth conference

By Musinguzi Peter Kabaseke

The English mass community together with Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Tarimo   organized a youth conference at Missionaries of African commonly known as Saint Mbaga Seminary Njiro, from July 29-31, 2011. The youth conference began with Eucharistic celebration led by Rev. Fr. Simon, S.J.

Different talks were organized in a Christian context for the youth to discover who they are in the society and to realize the external pressure and influence around them as they grow. The majority of the participants were students on holidays from different countries studying and living in Arusha Region.

According to Mr. Takech Sendze, chairperson of the English Mass community the youth conference should help the children to grow in their daily life. He was grateful to parents’ effort and their support towards the whole exercise, he promised the parents the exercise would continue every year for the growth of the Parish.

Talks such as HIV/ AIDS, peer pressure, friendship, the role of parents in the house, human sexuality, Bible sharing, fashion and Christian values were relevant in today’s situation for the youth and to equip them in facing the challenges and difficulties in making decisions. Visiting of the orphanage in Moshono was one of the activities during the conference .

The parents of the youth expressed gratitude to the organizers, lecturers and the English mass committee for facilitating such gathering.

Next month  Arusha Archdiocese will host National Youth Conference for Tanzania.  The  youth will be expected to participate in different events during that period.
