Activa8 Youth 4 Christ....OLOL Church Ipoh.

The Penang Diocese had their own celebration of World Youth day on the 23rd August at Our Lady of Lourdes Church Ipoh. I went to check it out and came away amazed at the energy exuded by the youth. The theme 'Activa8 Youth 4 Christ' was given by the Pope and the goal of this program was such ie activating the youth of the parish for Christ.

I got to OLOL during their lunch break.

..alot of the youth were eating and

..queing up for their lunch....


..a view of the area..the building on the right is the activity center...

..the grotto of Our Lady...

..the stage where the youth did their performances...the time"145pm.. /temperature .. scorching high../ humidity ...near high.... /team spirits ...even higher..

..the teams..central...............................south ....

...........island.......

..first up...from central ..with the song..."One way" ...



..showing the way...

,,and getting a following....

..next up...from the south.....

...getting interesting........the time is 215pm.....


....beyond borders.....the Filipino connection...with 'Anak'

..think this team is from Holy Spirit Penang....."Where is Jesus??"


..i couldn't figure out which was hotter these youth or the sun.....

... they found what they were looking for .......

..this was a mime performance / back ground song.."Give me my heart".. (from l-r) ..pilate, devil, Jesus and disciple...

...my interpretation of the script "..lost disciple....

..meets Jesus.....

...Jesus shows the way....

...but...

..disciple goes astray and regrets later....

..ever heard of salvation.........
