SEMINAR FOR THE MYM ANIMATORS
The Archdiocese of Nairobi held the Missionary Youth Movement (MYM) animators Seminar, making its much-anticipated return since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The MYM animators gathered at St. Paul’s Catholic University Chapel for a seminar aimed at enhancing their skills in working with the MYM members.
Over 450 animators from across the 119 parishes attended this event. The hall was filled to capacity, reflecting the enthusiasm and dedication of those involved. The seminar provided a platform for the animators to acquire valuable insights into engaging effectively with the MYM group.
The facilitator of the day Mr. Anastacio Nyaga, recognizing the sensitivity of this developmental stage, emphasized the animators’ crucial role as the spiritual parents of the MYM group within the church community. “You are essentially the mothers and fathers of this group while in the church, thus understanding their unique needs and expectations is paramount,” stated Mr. Nyaga. He shared practical tips to foster better communication and nurture a supportive environment for the MYM members.
The occasion ended with a celebration of the holy Mass led by Fr. Dominic Mwangi, the Archdiocesan assistant Youth Chaplain, and concelebrated by Fr. Victor Mbuthia, the Archdiocesan Youth Chaplain.
