Bayamón, Puerto Rico. From January 1st to February 2nd on the premises of St. Anthony Mary Claret Parish a workshop was held with the animators of Youth Ministry in zone of Bayamon.
In this city the Claretian Missionaries staff various parishes, an academic center, and various chapels. Participation in this workshop counted some one hundred participants, the majority of whom currently collaborate in youth ministry at their respective centers.
In addition to Fr. Héctor Cuadrado, Superior of the Delegation, Claretians from three communities participated. Fr. Juan Carlos Martos coordinated themes such as identity, formation, and services for the Animator of Youth Ministry (APJ), the APJ team, and how to promote the New Evangelization among the youth.
This workshop, in addition to constituting a major formative opportunity, has prompted a closer coordination of the Youth Ministry in this zone where the Claretians are present, and offers more missionary platforms of closeness to the young people who are away from the Church and the faith.
