“More than one thousand youths from the Catholic Church archdiocese of Honiara attended a week long program at Tamboko saint Mary Tanagai Parish North west Guadalcanal.
“The program commenced on Monday. The youths at the gathering come from three different parishes of the Archdiocese of Honiara. They are Holy family Kukum Parish, Holy Cross Parish and Saint Mary Tanagai Parish.
"The theme is STAY AWAKE’ the world teaches us to live subconsciously, but Jesus teaches us to live consciously, the theme reflects the many challenges that young people face today”, Fr Paa’si said.
“In the Solomon Islands, youth make up a significant and growing part of the population. 7 out of 10 Solomon Islanders are under 30 years old.”
