Bhopal, May 14, 2011: Jesus youth and  ICYM organized a retreat at St. Xavier’s in Bhopal.

Around 110 youth from 10 different parishes attended the May 10-13 program based on the theme “youth: you are the light of the world”.

All the seven resource persons for the event were from Nagpur.

Praise and worship, action songs, session, adoration and counseling sessions were held.

Meanwhile, Bhopal Youth Commission organized an inter-parish cricket and throw-ball tournament for boys and girls respectively.

The tournament was named after St. Francis of Assisi who is the patron saint of the Archdiocese.

Throw-ball was included in the games this year to encourage young girls to take active part in the diocesan programs. The girls were asked to organize the event in a bid to instill in them management and organizational skills.

The throw-ball competition saw 10 teams from different parishes taking part. The Infant Jesus Parish bagged the first position, while St. Edmund Campion and St. John Mary Vianney parish got the 2nd and 3rd positions respectively.

“This is a very good initiative as girls are often not included in such outdoor activities,” Rajni, one of the participants said.
