The next Asian Youth Day will be held in Yogyakarta on Indonesia’s main island of Java.
It will run from 30 July to 6 August 2017 and the theme is “Joyful Asian Youth: Living the Gospel in Multicultural Asia”.
More details can be found on the official site: asianyouthday.org
CLC’s participation in AYD is confirmed; we will be running formation activities.
Let us extend our continuous support and prayer for the preparation of CLC Asia Pacific Regional Assembly.
This Regional Assembly will be held in Taiwan on Thursday, 29th of January to Sunday, 1st of February 2105.
“This Assembly comes at an important time for CLC, the Church and us all. There is little need to recall the growing presence of our Church in the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, CLC (through the world Exco) is seeking to establish a clearer identity and role for CLC at the regional levels. Finally, the interests of younger people must be a high priority for us being in a global region with such a high proportion of younger people. Especially, we are interested in bringing the special gift and graces of CLC to youth in our world today.”

what’s the meaning of Valentine’s day in today’s world?
As far as i am concerned … it has to do with something that is so generously (or overused) term : LOVE.
It’s interesting to hear the elaboration of St. Thomas Aquinas’ description of LOVE : “the effective willing of the good of the other”
Some of the point …Love is first of all, a Choice, an act of the will …
Love is not a feeling, it’s something that we do
Love is first and foremost, for the good of other.
In other word : love is choosing to do for the best for the other person, and acting to make that real for them.
St. Ignatius also tells us, “Love is shown more in deeds than in words”
Have a lovely Valentine …
“I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you; therefore I despise myself, and repent in dust and ashes.”Job 42:6-5
In this special moment of reflections and repentance
wishing all of us to be able
to see Him more clearly,
to follow Him more nearly,
and to love Him more dearly
CLC Australia is having its National Assembly this weekend – Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
31 Australian delegates are present, and we’re blessed to have been joined by Ms Je Ching, Asia-Pacific Co-ordinator, and Fr Luke Rodrigues, World Vice EA. We also have two observers from New Zealand.
Please pray for us as we reflect on the last 4 years, set directions for the coming four years, and elect a new NEXCO.
