Over one thousand youth most of them Catholics in the diocese of Kasese had by last evening turned up for the diocesan youth conference with a call on them to seek for the protection and mercies of God by casting all their burdens to the Holy Cross.
In his Homily during the opening holy Mass at the conference held at Bridge for Peace International school near the Bishop`s residence yesterday(06th.April.2022), the diocesan youth chaplain, Rev. Fr. Joseph Tumusiime said the conference was organized for the participants to share their weaknesses and strength but also jointly and individually talk to Christ who is always ready to receive them the way they are.
The Rector for St. Michael Kabuyiri Shrine, Rev. Fr. Julius Bwambale said the youth encounters a number of trails, traps and temptation, adding that its only Christ who can fight for them for as long as they welcome him in their lives. Fr. Julius speaking …..
