World Youth Day – Tecate 2013

By September 20, 2013Blog

What began as a community activity turned into a city wide event. The Sisters known as the Trinitarians of Mary welcomed over 1,000 youths to celebrate World Youth Day in Tecate, Mexico on July 27 & 28, 2013. A comprehensive and intense program was created to reignite the concern for the youth within the community. The program included an emphasis on building relationships, reconnecting with the body of Christ and being encouraged in God’s love. Sharing with Serving Hands International’s Field Officer, Joaquin Hernandez, Sister Katharina stated, “In the presence of so many young people who have expressed familiarity with suffering, loneliness and abandonment, we yearn to be the consoling voice of Christ in their lives.” One of the many volunteers added, “I was without awareness of this intense love for my faith until I witnessed this event!” A donation made by Serving Hands International and the owners of A-1 Self Storage to the Trinitarians of Mary helped provide food, water and other supplies to make the two day event possible. Thanks to the generosity and support of A-1 Self Storage and donors like you the participation in World Youth Day – Tecate was made possible. Thank you for investing in the lives of Tecate’s Youth!
