NYD2017 and Synod 2018 – Muchismas Gracias & Puede Pa!

Your Eminences,
Your Excellencies:

The Mighty One has done great things for us!

May we express once more our deep gratitude to all of you who sent your delegations of young people, accompanied by your youth ministers, to the National Youth Day 2017 in the Archdiocese of Zamboanga!  As well, our heartfelt thanks to the Archdiocese of Zamboanga, led by His Excellency, Most Rev. ROMULO DELA CRUZ, DD, for their warm welcome and generous hospitality!  We pray for safe travels back to our origins, and a beautiful way forward inspired by the experience of the NYD2017 national celebration.

The Synod Secretariat has informed us today that they are still open to accept responses from us.  Therefore, may we request those dioceses which have not yet submitted their diocesan responses to the Synod 2018 to please send to us not later than November 15.

Thank you very much for your kind attention.  May we seek your support for a meaningful local celebration of the National Youth Day this December 16, the first day of the Misa de Gallo.

Holy is God’s Name!

Yours sincerely,

Bishop of Bangued
Chairman of the CBCP-Episcopal Commission on Youth
