Bishop Xavier Munyongani, responsible for Zimbabwe’s National Catholic Youth Council, challenged over three thousand youths gathered at Kutama College in Chinhoyi Dioceses for the second National Catholic Youth Congress to act justly, be benevolent and humble.
Addressing the multitude, the prelate expressed his joy for seeing the young people stressing his hope for a better church tomorrow.
The congress, held once in 4 years, is the second from the one hosted by Hwange Diocese in 2013.
It was ran from the 17th to the 20th of August under the theme, “The mighty one has done great things for me and Holy is his name.”
In a music filled homily, Bishop Munyongani encouraged the young people to practice Catholic faith with respect and decency.
He challenged the young people to act justly, love goodness and walk humbly with your God.
“You have to work together to get closer to God and to get closer to each other,” said Bishop Munyongani.
The National Youth Chairperson, Tendai Karombo encouraged the entire youth body to lie a reflected life and look in gratitude of the good things the Lord has done in their lives.
“Like Mary we have to look at all the things that the Lord has done and praise his name. We also wanted shift our focus and look at Mary the Mother of God, as she was entrusted to us by Jesus.” Said Karombo
During this year’s congress, participants engaged in various discussions and activities which include sporting activities, talks, presentations on youth participation in national issues, and young people’s challenges in today’s world.
