30th April - 3rd May 2020
What is Encounter?
is a celebration for young people organised by the Malta Catholic Youth Network – MCYN. It aims to enable encounter
on 4 different levels:
Although prayer and the Eucharist are
the cruces of such a celebration,
Encounter is diverse in its make-up.
Live music, workshops, discussion groups,
games and keynote speeches are just
a few of the events that take place
over the weekend.
Many young people are not very open about
their faith. This can result from simple
things like being shy, but many times it's
a question of the fear of not feeling
accepted. We want to encounter one
another at the celebration and recognise
that there are others, who like us, are
on this journey of faith, with all its
struggles and joys.
We want to see a generation that
really desires to follow God, to love
Him and Adore him. We desire to see
a generation of young people who will
know that God is infinitely merciful
towards them and is calling them
to a life of fullness lived in freedom.
We want to share our faith, we want to
celebrate it and shout it from the rooftops.
We want to be present in society,
to share the good news we have received.
We want to be there where it matters,
especially with those who are alone,
suffering, and forgotten.
We belong to the wider community.
We have an important part to play
in the lived experience of the Church.
We want to be present, to learn
from our elders, and help our younger
brothers and sisters in faith.
