NYD 2016

Joyful greetings in Christ, our Merciful King!
 
The Episcopal Commission on Youth (ECY) is pleased to present to you the National Youth Day (NYD) 2016 Formation Program, to aid you in the local celebration of the NYD this December 16.
 
The NYD2016 theme follows the theme of this year’s World Youth Day, “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.” [Mt 5:7].
 
Thanking God as we close the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy and our own Year of the Eucharist and the Family, we seek His grace to become builders of communion in our parishes, ever rooted in mercy, in this coming Year of the Parish as Communion of Communities.
 
Fraternally yours in Christ,
