The assembly began at 9 a.m. with praise and worship led by St Michael’s, Maracas Valley. A presentation by Dr Andrea Hutchinson of Bourg Mulatresse RC followed. She told the young people they had the power to make a difference in society and to not be afraid of being “game changers”.
Convened into smaller groups, the youth participated in discussions surrounding faith, sexuality, and social issues. Questions on these and other topics were then put to a panel comprising Fr Jayson Grell FMI, Sr Sandra Xavier OP, Br Colin Jackson CSSp, seminarian Stephan Alexander, Leela Ramdeen, chair of the Catholic Commission for Social Justice, and youth leader Darrion Narine.
