Youth reminded: Papal visit not a social gathering

Nov. 29, 2014, 6:13 p.m. - THE CATHOLIC Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) is urging the youth to renew and strengthen their faith during Pope Francis' visit to the Pontifical University of Santo Tomas on Jan. 18, 2015.

Bishop Leopoldo Jaucian, chairman of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines-Episcopal Commission on Youth (CBCP-ECY), called on young Filipinos to reflect on the real essence of the Pope’s visit, which is to live and share God’s “mercy and compassion.”

Pope’s encounter with youth in UST ‘not just for Thomasians’

Nov. 28, 2014, 9:52 a.m. - POPE Francis' meeting with the youth in Asia's oldest university on Jan. 18 will be open to all, not just Thomasians.

Bishop Leopoldo Jaucian, chairman of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines—Episcopal Commission on Youth (CBCP-ECY), said the gathering in the Pontifical University would be for the whole Church, especially Catholic youth.

“We are happy that UST accepted to be venue of this youth encounter. But this is not merely for Thomasians," he told the Varsitarian. "This is open for everyone, but with special prioritization for the youth.”

The UST parade ground will however be reserved for pre-selected participants from youth ministries of dioceses across the nation, which the ECY will determine.
