The youth delegates from Hong Kong for the International Claretian Youth Gathering in Lodz, which will be celebrated prior to the World Youth Day in Krakow in July 2016, gathered together for a two-day formation camp at Mui Wo in Lantau Island on 20 and 21 February. Fifteen youth and two animators will participate in the events in Poland.

The two-day camp put the youth through numerous team building and spiritual formation activities. Fr. Alberto Rossa shared his experiences with the Youth Ministry in Argentina and urged the participants to channel their energy and passion to be better persons and better Christians to their families and friends. Eucharistic celebrations, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Taize prayer and a movie on the life of Blessed Mother Teresa of Kolkotha were some of the highlights of the event.
The beautiful landscape of Mui Wo and good weather conditions created the perfect ambience for the two-day event. The group will continue to gather every month for a time of prayer and sharing in preparation for the WYD.
