Kuching – On Saturday 26th of August, a total of 31 YCS participants and servants from various schools took part in the Taize Prayer, organized by the YCS members and Catholic students of SMK Sungai Tapang. The Taize Prayer was held at St. James’ room, St. Joseph’s Cathedral Parish Centre.

     The event organized was a follow up for the action task, from  the YCS Middle Year Camp activities,  which was held in Kampung Krokong last June. The objective aims to strengthen the faith and foster Christian relationship through prayers and fellowship among the members of the YCS Club, as the children of God.

     Taize prayer is a meditating and reflecting prayer and is practiced by our Christian brothers and sisters all around the world. The theme ‘Friendship’ has been selected to foster friendship among the members and non-members of the YCS Club as well as focusing on personal relationship with God. 

     During the Taize prayer session, we chanted selected taize prayers repeatedly in a serene atmosphere accompanied by the strumming of a guitar note. This prayerful ambience gives space and opportunity for  us to spend time, and be connected with God. After that, we listened and reflected on the word of God that says: “Couldn’t you watch with me for even one hour?” 

     The programme concluded with photo sessions with our teacher advisor teacher, Miss Jenifer Stian.
