Seminar-Workshop for the Friends of SVD.
The workshop/seminar for the Friends of SVD will be on June 10-12, 2022, at St. Michael House in Otiende. In this workshop/seminar, the following themes will be shared: the context of the SVD worldwide mission, the spirituality of the Founder, the vision of the Society for self-reliance, the SVD lay partners worldwide, and collaborative efforts and participation of the lay faithful in the mission. We are expecting at least three representatives (Friends of SVD) from each District for this seminar-workshop
For more than 20 years now, it has been a custom for SVD youth parishes to celebrate Easter Monday by participating in walk famously known as “Emmaus Walk”. Youth and everyone willing to join together with SVD confreres walk from one SVD parish to another. The walk begins with the first rites of Mass at the first station. The first reading and the Psalms are read in another station. Then at some points there are some symbolic activities such as breaking of symbolic chains representing the chains that tie and prevent the young people from achieving their goals in life. The Gospel and the rest of the mass are held at the final station.
