Youth Serving Christ

“Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love,
in spirit, in faith, in purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12.

By Christ, for Christ

To understand and serve God in spirit and truth.

To be role models in the apostolate and missionary work.

To enhance spiritual, moral and integral growth.

Service, integrity, respect and mutual growth.

The youth-serving Christ (YSC) group of The Holy Family minor Basilica comprises of members
between ages 20 and 26 years.

The group currently has 60 members with an executive committee comprised of the Chaplain,
the Patron and Matron, and the YSC Council.

We have four main committees; Spiritual, Social, Talent, and Finance that umbrella the activities
are undertaken.

They include:
1. 10:00 am mass animation
2. Choir participation
3. Recollection, Pilgrimage, and Retreat
4. Bible study sessions
5. Sports and swimming
6. Social and welfare activities
7. Works of charity
8. Way of the cross act
9. Adoration, Benediction, and Confessions
10. Formations

Meetings are held every Sunday at 11.30 am for 45 minutes. We get to pray the rosary, read the
Bible, sing, review the 10.00 am mass, get informed on upcoming activities and the kind of
preparations we need to have in place and interact with each other.

Most members in YSC are in colleges, attachments/internships, starting off their careers or business. Others have just graduated from the Missionary Youth Movement (MYM).

Major activities done this year include:

Electing of the new Youth council, charity, Acting of the way of the cross, retreat, formation,
talent show, Bible Trivia and sports. Other activities in anticipation are; Induction of new members, Pilgrimage, hiking, recollection.

The council cordially invites young Catholics in the age bracket mentioned to join us and they will be guided on the way forward.
