Mangaluru January 20, 2017. Mr. John Rhee from Germany while addressing the delegates of NYC 2017 shared his experience of Catechesis all around the world and also about evangelization. He said we need to have living relationship with Jesus by valuing sacraments as much as we value the Bible.
DOCAT presentation was given by Jan-Philipp Goertz, the director for International and Government Affairs for Lufthansa Germany Airlines. He said ”Everyone can be united under the name of Jesus and with any powers of the nations, companies or technologies, not because we use music or WhatsApp. If god wants we can have power, money etc., but if we do not have Jesus we have nothing”. He also highlighted why we need to know about the DOCAT and how to make a change in the world.
The session was concluded with a brief explanation on success of spreading YOUCAT and DOCAT in different languages and asked the youngsters to do the same. Interestingly these books were not written by the priest but it was the work of young people. Ms Jeraline Coordinator for DOCAT in India shared her experience.
Mr Anto Akara, shared his experience of working for the Kandhamal victims.
Later in the evening the Gospel Band "Revelations" entertained and gave a spiritual experience to the NYC delegates.
