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.

KAYD Cross

 

DID YOU KNOW??

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”.
