Nkhate parish YCW hold preparations for diocesan AGM

The Young Christian Workers (YCW) in Nkhate parish on Sunday convened a meeting with an aim of stepping up their preparations for the upcoming Annual General Meeting which they are to host.

The meeting took place soon after the Sunday Mass at the parish. Speaking at the beginning of the meeting, Yakobe Mpiyama who is secretary of the grouping, stood in for the chairperson and welcomed all members who had gathered for the meeting. In his remarks, Mpiyama emphasized on the importance of the meeting as it was very crucial for the success of the upcoming AGM.

“As we are all aware, our parish is privileged to have been given the honor to host this year’s diocesan AGM for the Young Christian Workers. Let us therefore join hands as we start our preparations to make the conference a success” Said Mpiyama.

Top on the agenda for the day’s meeting was formulation of a budget. Having deliberated, the budget for the whole event came to Three Hundred and Seventy Thousand Kwacha.

The grouping also discussed the church elections which are underway in Small Christian Communities and YCW will have to held theirs so as to usher in new leadership.

Speaking at the close of the meeting, Fr John Lockie, who is the curate for Nkhate parish, and also happens to be diocesan Youth Chaplain, thanked all members for their utmost dedication to the course of YCW. In particular, he commended the members for their contributions during the meeting and urged all to unite as they prepare to host this meeting.

“Let us all remember that as hosts, our duty is enormous. We need to be at our best if we are to successfully host the general meeting” remarked Fr Lockie.

Young Christian Workers is one of the Catholic Church’s lay apostolates that helps in the evangelization mission. It is made of young people who feel can help the church as they enjoy the vigor and enthusiasm of their age.

The AGM will be held in November later this year in Nkhate parish.
