The Visitation Youth group, Y2Y had its 1st youth mass on Saturday 20th November 2010. About 50 of the Y2Y members took part. It was an exciting event for all the youths - from the lectors, to the psalmist, the band member and the choir members as it was the first time they had participated actively in a youth mass. A big hand must be given to the band members comprising Daryl on the drums and guitarist Zeno, Calvin and Daniel as they put up a good show despite only practising together twice.
A BBQ was also held after the youth mass to enable the Y2Y members to mingle and get to know each other better. The main reason for the BBQ is to enable the youths to have an avenue to hold an activity within the church compound and to strengthen their bonding. It was a great night with a lot of activities planned by the youth facilitators and good food.
Y2Y was formed in October 2009 to encourage spiritual and social development of the youths of Visitation parish. It is open for youths from Forms 1 to 5. Y2Y meets every fortnightly on Sundays from 12.30 pm to 2.00pm. Y2Y currently has about 60 members. The group’s advisors are Peter T and Lavinia and they are assisted by a group of college students.
Y2Y have assisted in some of the formation programs organised by the Sunday School. They have taken charge of the ice-breakers and games for the Bible Camps organised during the school holidays, and the energisers and puppet show for the Joy Camp for the First Holy Communion students. They have also assisted in the sale of Bibles during our church Feast Day celebration, sold drinks during the food sale for the Christmas Campaign for the poor and are currently selling car stickers for the Church Restoration Fund.
