As part of responding to Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation Christus Vivit, and the Provincial Chapter’s call to better accompanying young adults, the Province Youth Ministry Office recently hosted a gathering of young professionals for an evening of networking, dialogue, and fellowship. The purpose of the gathering was to engage young adults from our works who currently are rooted in their professional life and wanted to help the province reach out to young people who are poor, at-risk and on the margins. Throughout the night, these young people connected and shared their ideas with one another. Needs of young people in our province today were surfaced and creative ideas were sparked. While this is only an initial gathering of many others to come, it was a great evening where the young people took on the role of protagonists who wanted to do more for those on the periphery. The young adults who gathered came from the various professions of education, finance, mental health, visual arts, ministry, and business.
