In preparation for the celebration of the 500th Year of Christianity in the Philippines, the CBCP has declared 2019 as the Year of the Youth. The occasion was officially opened last Sunday (Dec. 2), the first Sunday of Advent, and will close on Nov. 24, 2019, the feast of Christ the King. The year-long celebration will reflect on the theme “Filipino Youth in Mission: Beloved, Gifted, Empowered”. Activities both in the national and diocesan levels are aimed on at least four objectives: youth in formation, youth in community, Church and society, youth in mission, and youth ministry and youth ministers.
In line with this celebration, joint efforts of PNP Headquarters, NCRPO, NCRPO Ladies Club spearheaded by Madam Rosalie H. Eleazar, NCRPO Regional Community Affairs Development Division and NCRPO Chaplain Service formally opened the PNP Youth Camp 2019 with a theme, “I am Youth. I am Beloved. I am Gifted. I am Empowered. ONE IN MISSION THROUGH CHRIST”, this afternoon at St. Michael Retreat House, San Jose Extension, L Sumulong Memorial Circle, Antipolo City.
The NCRPO Regional Director PMGEN GUILLERMO LORENZO T ELEAZAR called on the 142 youth participants to deepen their understanding about the responsibilities of a Filipino youth to their family, community and country. He encourage them to be inspired by the call of the Church for the year of the Youth as Beloved, Gifted and Empowered.
The PNP Youth Camp 2019 is a three days activity that will end on April 25, 2019.
