Fr Stephan D’souza stressed upon the importance of the Youth Catechism (Youcat) in modern times and narrated its evolution. Youcat is a 2011 publication that aims to be an aid for youth to better understand the ‘Catechism of the Catholic Church’. The book, drafted in the form of a conversation, is intended for use by Catholic youth around the world and is available in 25 languages. Youcat is based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church (1997) and the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church (2005). The catechism has 304 pages and consists of four chapters with 527 questions and answers. The foreword was written by Pope Benedict XVI. Approximately 700,000 copies of Youcat were distributed in 13 different languages on behalf of the Pope during World Youth Day 2011 in Madrid.

The YOUCAT explains the following: What Catholics believe and why (doctrine). How Catholics celebrate the mysteries of the faith (sacraments). How Catholics are to live (moral life). How they should pray (prayer and spirituality).

After the Holy Mass and lunch, the ICYM members once again assembled in the hall at 2 pm for the cultural programme competition. Each of the 9 parishes was assigned 15 minutes during which they were required to present a skit and a dance.

Soon after the end of the competition, the valedictory function was held. Fr. Stany B Lobo-Parish Priest of Milagres Cathedral presided over the valedictory function. Other dignitaries on the dais included Fr. Leslie D’souza- ICYM director Kallianpur deanary, Fr. Rolvin Aranha- ICYM assistant director, Fr. Victor D’souza- Kemmannu parish priest, Fr. Anil Castelino- Kolalgiri parish priest, Charles Lewis- vice president Kemmannu parish, Aral D’souza- Kemmannu unit president, Melcon Lewis- Kallianpur Deanery ICYM president, Sherlin D’sa – ICYM Diocese president, Don D’souza- ICYM diocese vice president, Michelle Ferrao- ICYM president Karkal deanery.

Fr Victor D’souza appreciated the work done by the ICYM members of Kemmannu in organizing the Yuva Samagam 2017 and giving an opportunity to the youth of the Kallianpur Deanery to have the rich experience of the Youcat.
