Shillong, Jul. 16. Salesian Youth Ministry was the main focus during the Junior Priests' Meet of Silchar Province held at Pastoral Centre Shillong from 7th to 10th July, 2015. Father Anthony Christy from Chennai animated the young priests the first two days.
In his sessions with the young priests Fr. Christy stressed that Salesians are carrying out not merely Youth Work but Youth Ministry. Therefore, it is the whole community that takes initiatives; and not an individual.  He reminded the 18 Junior Priests that their first priority should be the young. ''Wherever a Salesian goes his first concern should be for the young. If he goes to a parish, his first job is to find out the number young people there, study the situation they are in, find out their concerns...''

In the first half of the last day of the programme,  10th July, Father Joseph Pulinthanath and his team consisting of Father Michael Makri, Father Joby Joseph and Ms. Rosemary Ishohary enlightened the participants on the role of the Media and its impact on young people. Father Pulinthanath also enlightened the junior priests on certain basic elements in news reporting. Father George Maliekal, the Provincial, animated the young priests in the remaining sessions. Father Paul O. Lyngkot, the Vice Provincial, coordinated the programme.

The pleasant weather of Shillong and the conducive atmosphere of Pastoral Centre were other factors which refreshed, energised and renewed the Junior Priests to continue their journey with joy and enthusiasm in the Don Bosco way. It was indeed a very enriching experience!
