Balai San Jose

By Friland Fernandez

“Choose the right path and you will never go wrong.”

This year’s vicariate launching of the Year of the Youth was a big challenge to us, the youth, in all aspects…be it financial, physical or even spiritual. But as the theme “Filipino Youth in Mission: Beloved. Gifted. Empowered.” says, we dared ourselves to go beyond our circles and prove what we are capable of doing for His glory. Also, we recognized that we are servant servers.

The Balai San Jose was established based on the teachings and deeds of Saint Joseph as our vicariate’s patron saint. It was held in our parish and Claret School of Quezon City. Its aim was to gather and celebrate the occasion with other ministries. More than 500 participants from different parishes within our vicariate were present. Aside from the games and praise fest, talks about Urban Farming, Business Advocacy and Depression among others were the highlights of the event.

It was just an opening salvo of so many activities in line for our youth!
