Hundreds Of Youth Expected To Gather In Mahaut For The Diocesan World Youth Day Rally
The Diocese of Roseau Youth Secretariat in collaboration with the Parish of St. Ann, will host its annual World Youth Day Rally on Saturday March 31st, which will commence from 10:00am in the community of Mahaut.
The theme for this year’s rally is: “Your Word is a Lamp for my Steps and a Light for my Path.”
Pope Benedict the XVI has also declared “Rejoice in the Lord Always” as the official World Youth Day theme.
World Youth Day is an initiative of the late Pope John Paul II, and is normally celebrated on Palm Sunday worldwide.
Hundreds of youths, are expected to gather at the corner of Dominica Coconut Products and the Belfast Road on Saturday morning, to begin a lively praise and worship procession through the village led by Jeffers Paul & Friends.
The procession will lead to the Mahaut playing field (Teza grounds), where a faith filled programme of activities is planned, with His Lordship, Bishop Gabriel Malzaire along with the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports and the local Parliamentary Representative.
The featured speaker for this year’s annual rally is Mr. Nic Davidson, a young Catholic convert and missionary.
Other guest performances included Asher Thomas and various parish youth groups who will share their gifts in song and dance.
A special feature of the rally will be a bible quiz competition, based on the popular TV game show “Who Wants to be a Millionaire”, where Parishes and Catholic Secondary Schools will be competing, for a grand prize trip to the Antilles Episcopal Conference Youth Assembly to be held in St.Lucia, in July 2012.
The Diocesan Youth Secretariat invites all youth and interested adults to this annual event to be blessed.
