Catholic Youths Hold bazaar

In a bid to have youth interaction among its young church members, the Central Eastern Division Youth Council organised a bazaar for Catholic youths from 18 parishes around the country.

The St Agnes School ground in Nabua, Suva was abuzz with activities as youths from these parishes converged at the ground for the chance to interact and raise funds for the council.

The council’s leader of research and planning committee, Miki Wali, said youths from as far as Lau, Lomaiviti, Kadavu and Rotuma attended the one-day event.

“This event used to happen before but then we’ve revived it as young people; as young leaders. The bazaar is to ensure that come 2015 the council will be able to sustain itself financially; we are able to plan our own activities and fund our own activities,” Mr Wali said.

“It is also to make sure that young people come together for bonding. We are gathering for a good reason and we are representing our faith and celebrating our identity as young Catholics and as leaders.”
The bazaar also provided a platform for youths to learn about non-communicable diseases.

“We have sporting activities and other tabloid games. We are also funded by the Ministry of Health as co-corporate sponsors for today (yesterday) in our fight against non-communicable diseases so the theme is, ‘Take youths, take ownership, be active leaders and evangelisers’, as part of our sideline activity.”

The council has more than 3000 church youths under its leadership.
The youths also had a soli which would go towards the council’s preparation for next year’s meet.
More than 500 youths attended the bazaar yesterday.
