Young Adult Programme
The Young Adult Planning Committee met at Centre International to plan for the programme of August 2 – 12, 2009 at the International Center in Le Puy-en-Velay. The committee included Maria Cristina Gavazzi - Chair (Italy), Donna Cicalese, Centre International, Helena de Fatima Dos Passos, Brazil, Suzanne Franck, U.S., Josette Goudard, France, Lorraine Malo, Centre International, Thérèse Meunier, Canada, Colette Philibert, France, and Martha Tharamuttathu, Centre International. During this planning meetings, the team worked out a schedule and budget. They saught funding for this programme in order to keep the costs as low as possible so that many young adults between the ages of 21 – 30 could participate. The experience focused on peace-making as expressed in the title of the programme: Become a Neighbour: Peace Depends on It. The ten-day session included prayer, small group sharing, artistic expression, a few days in Taizé, the ecumenical community near Lyon, some time walking a portion of the Chemin de Compostelle. There was lots of time for getting acquainted with the city of Le Puy and the historic and religious sites found here. The youth shared their ideas, hopes and dreams for a better world. Youth from various countries came so that the programme was truly multicultural and multilingual and proved to be a genuine sharing among cultures. Through deep sharing, enriched by input from the CSSJ charism and spirituality, the programme was a transformative experience for the youth who attended.
