The YCS Coordination of the Sacred Heart Parish, Catholic Diocese of YEI, Kajo Keji, would like to invite you YCS members of our Parish to celebrate in this year 2015 the following important events for us:
In this year 2015 we complete 30 years of existence, since in 1985 the YCS Movement started in our Country of South Sudan (Juba), and in our Catholic Diocese of Yei 8 years ago, and finally in our County of Kajo Keji, Sacred Heart Parish 4 years ago in three of the five current Senior Secondary Schools where actually carry out our activities.
Celebrating these important anniversaries, we invite you to celebrate that happiness and blessings through some activities:
With the theme: “YCS care 4th Ecology” we shall reflect about Ecology and the care of our Environment and answer to some questions and take important decisions and steps, following the YCS methodology of See-Judge-Act:
1st Step: SEE
Pollution of our Environment: What the consequences of polluting our environment, for instance, when we throw away the inorganic wastes like plastics, metals, etc, that at the end go and remain in our fields, markets, rivers, roads, schools, etc?
Deforestation: What is it that is called deforestation? What happen when we cut off our trees without replacing them? What happen with the dioxide of carbon if there are fewer and fewer trees? What the importance of oxygen for human beings?
2nd Step: JUDGE
Pollution of our Environment: What the Word of God says about Ecology and about polluting our environment?
Deforestation: What the Word of God says about the care of our world, ecology and about deforestation?
3rd Step: ACT
Pollution of our Environment: How can we commitment ourselves to protect and avoid lack of care of our environment in concrete steps, for instance about the inorganic or organic rubbish, that is been thrown away, etc? Which steps can be taken in our schools, at our markets or public places, at the level of our local government and at the level of our parish and local communities?
Deforestation: How we can commitment ourselves to protect our environment in concrete steps talking about forestation? Which steps can be taken in our schools, at our markets or public places, at the level of our local government and at the level of our parish and local communities?
During the months of June, July and August, we shall read, study and come out with some implementations or steps to mark our 2015 YCS celebrations.
And during the month of September, we shall reflect about the coming new Encyclical letter of our Holiness, Pope Francis I, about Ecology.
Receive our greetings and our best wishes, hoping that you shall share more and more to others this good initiative and its fruits and steps! May God bless you and renew our faith and commitment!
