Bishop Gerald Isaac Lobo said after the inauguration for the youth that the time has come for the church to pass on the cudgel of blessings to youth of the diocese. It is our desire to accompany you on your life journey to maturity so that, through a process of discernment, you may come to discover your plan for life and to realize it with joy. It is our wish that you may experience throughout this year and beyond, a deeper encounter with God and neighbor and to actively participate in the transformation of society and the church today.


However, the challenges of globalization, technological dominance, as well as economic and social hardships cannot be overlooked in the discovery of your vocation. The church wishes to listen to your voice, your sensitivities and your faith, even you doubts and criticism. It is only when the church can inspire and accompany you adequately on your life journey to maturity. May Mary, the mother of God, intercede for you.

“Accompaniment of the church in the life journey of young people” is the theme for the entire year. In responding to Synod of Bishops on Young people which were held from 3-28 October 2018, the diocese has announced the year of youth.

To celebrate the year of youth meaningfully, the youth commission of the diocese has already prepared an action plan with the help of youth and it has been sent to all the parishes. For every month, the individual theme is chosen to correspond to the annual theme. A short glimpse is as follows :
