FORGIVEN AND FREE: A Festival of Mercy

How are you planning to close the Jubilee of Mercy?  Join this overnight festival with other young people!

The Archdiocese of Manila, through its Ministry on Campus (part of its archdiocesan youth ministry office), and the Adamson University Campus Ministry is putting up “FORGIVEN AND FREE: A Festival of Mercy” this November 19-20.


The festival welcomes young people in groups, whether school-based or not.  Registration online is necessary using the registration form (attached) provided by the organizers, as well as a nominal fee of only P200 per person (to cover event ID, kit, and November 19 dinner and November 20 breakfast).  No onsite registration will be entertained.

To be held in the Adamson University in Manila, this overnight vigil will begin at 4:00 PM of Saturday, and end at 8:00 AM of Sunday, Solemnity of Christ the King and closing day of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy declared by Pope Francis last year.

It will be a celebration of God’s mercy, His gift to His beloved children as we close the jubilee!  As Pope Francis himself said, “The Jubilee is like a party to which Jesus invites us all, without excluding anyone.  It is a time when we discover that life together as brothers and sisters is like a great party, perhaps the most beautiful party we can imagine, the endless party that Jesus has taught us to celebrate by His Spirit.”

If you are a student in Metro Manila or nearby areas, tell your school about this; if you are from a parish or youth group, let your leaders know.  Be part of this party for mercy!
