Marist Youth Commission decides a two-year strategic plan

03/04/2018: Nigeria

Six members of the Marist Youth Commission of the Nigeria province decided on its two-year strategic plan during a meeting at Orlu, Nigeria, held for two days earlier this month.

They reflected on the fourth call of the 22nd General Chapter Message which asks Marists “to journey with children and young people living on the margins of life.”

The commission also recalled one of the recommendations of the province of Nigeria’s ninth provincial chapter which appeals to “intensify Marist youth ministry in the province to create more opportunities for the less privileged children and youth.”  

One of the commission’s aims is to evangelise youth in the peripheries.

Four initiatives were adopted for recommendation to the provincial and his council, which will guide the commission’s work for the next two years:

  • Sustain the Marist Youth Football Club at Uturu – a platform that reaches youth on the periphery.
  • Classes during summer holidays for poor children each August in Uturu.
  • Marist Youth Festival in the diocese of Enugu in Feb. 2019, at the football field of Iva-Valley.
  • Proposal to use Uturu’s rice mill for a youth centre.
