Over the years the youth Mass at La Divina Pastora RC, Siparia has grown from strength to strength. On Sunday, April 29 another youth Mass occurred but this one stood apart from others for several reasons. The most obvious difference was the decision to seek a collaboration with members of the St Christopher’s Anglican Church.
The relationship between the Catholic and Anglican communities has always been cordial. This year also marked an official resumption of the tradition of a joint Good Friday walk.
The parish priests, Fr Alan Hall of La Divina Pastora and Rev Aaron Charles of St Christopher’s have both also intensified efforts to encourage many of the absent Siparia youths to return to their respective communities. These two young priests have also sought to encourage their youths to become more involved in parish life. As Rev Charles emphasised at the end of his sharing “We may be different theologically but we are all children of God called to draw His people to Him.”
