She related the KAYD19 theme this year which taken from Luke 1:38 I am the servant of the Lord, Let it be done according to your word. The virtue of KAYD19’ is charity & hope and it a line with the extraordinary mission years which focus on the mission work.

KAYD18: Facilitator Workshop

KUCHING – The Kuching Archdiocesan Youth Commission organized their Facilitator Workshop in conjunction with their KAYD18 event. The purpose of the workshop is to gather youths from different parishes to gain knowledge in facilitation skills. The workshop also aims to ready the youth for the Kuching Archdiocesan Youth Day (KAYD) which will be held next year.  24 Youths from various parishes had attended the workshop on 18th of August 2018 at the ACCPC building.

The workshop was animated by invited speaker Fr Ramon Borja SDB, whom is currently stationed at St Stephen Parish, Bau. The workshop began with a short ice breaking led by Alex Tai from KYCS Youth Group. At the workshop, Fr Ramon shared his thoughts and views the role of a facilitator. Fr Ramon then further explained the few guidelines and tips on facilitation skills from various sources like videos and songs.

In addition, the workshop promotes good sense of Christian Community as the Youth went into a group discussion. The discussion questions about the parish youth fears and what can youth learned from the role of Mother Mary. The workshop also teaches the participants to ensure that the answers to their discussion are SMART criteria answers.

Hence, the workshop proves to be a helpful platform for the participants to gain their facilitation skills and is inspiring as the participants were being exposed to the knowledge and skills by the Speaker. In addition, they also learned how to manage different personalities of people.

‘The facilitation workshop was very useful. It was conducted well by Fr. Ramon. With his guidance, we managed to gain a lot of insight on how to better facilitate not only youth gatherings but corporate meetings as well. I also learned how to manage the different personalities encountered during events and how to help everyone gain the most from group discussions.’  Esther Chai – Kuching Young Christian Students (KYCS).

“It’s been a blessing for me to experience a facilitator training organized by KAYD18. Even I have been a youth leader in my parish, but still this workshop has taught me to be more than facilitating but to know the joy of youth serving youth.” said Stephanie from St Stephen, Bau.
