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.

I understand that dancing needs passion, discipline humility, confidence and undignified instead of skills itself. From the experienced I’ve been through today, I feel that no matter how awkward you are, just follow the grooves and enjoy for people will absolutely receive your message of God’s word (2 Samuel 6:1-15). I never regret in joining this workshop. Thanks, God. – Elliesha Tumeh, St. Jude Bunan)

KAYD Launching Mass celebrate by Archbishop Simon Poh and Rev. Fr. Larry Tan

24th February 2018 – More than 100 youth from Archdiocese of Kuching gathered at St Joseph Cathedral to participate in the Launching Mass and to witness the reception of Mini KAYD Cross for KAYD18 organized by Kuching Archdiocesan Youth Commission (KAYC)

The mass was celebrated by His Grace Archbishop Simon Poh and con – celebrant was Reverend Fr Larry Tan as a Chaplain of Kuching Campus Ministry. The Mini KAYD Cross were handed to each Parish Youth Ministry and Youth group by His Grace Archbishop Simon Poh at the end of the Mass as a sign “Go and proclaiming the Good News to other youth” in their respective area.

The Parish Youth Ministry and Youth groups will bring the Mini KAYD Cross in their respective area and will organize a prayer time or sessions in line with the KAYD18 theme; in a way to prepare the young people in their area for Kuching Archdiocesan Youth Day 2019 (KAYD19).


KAYD Cross



In 2004, The Kuching Archdiocesan Youth Commission has taken up the called to take the same Cross of Christ by creating a great wooden cross (similar to World Youth Day Cross) and do the pilgrimage from one Parish to one Parish to proclaim to young people in Archdiocese of Kuching that only in Christ Dead and Risen is there Salvation and Redemption. The cross has been used for Kuching Archdiocesan Youth Day (a big gathering of young people in Archdiocese of Kuching) and other big occasion but one thing the Kuching Archdiocesan Youth Commission realized that; it is not enough to reach out to the young people in their own respective chapels to proclaim the Good News.
Hence, the Kuching Archdiocesan Youth Commission entrust the Mini KAYD Cross to each Parish Youth Ministry and Youth groups to do the pilgrimage in their respective chapels to proclaim the Good News as a preparation for KAYD19. This year’s, Kuching Archdiocesan Youth Day 2018 (KAYD18) will be done in parish level which is called as Pre – KAYD18. The Parish Youth Ministry and Youth group will organize their Pre – KAYD18 in their respective area in line with Kuching Archdiocesan Youth Day 2018 theme which was taken from Luke 1:30 Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favour with God”.
