8th ST. JOHN PAUL II CEBU CONFERENCE

Ongoing Formation on Communication for Educators, Youth Animators and Catechists

    OVERVIEW

    The JPII Cebu Conference, now on its 8th year, is an annual conference of the Salesian South Province (FIS) through its Social Communications Office (SOCCOM) and Center for Lay Adults and Youth (CLAY). Dubbed as 8th St. John Paul II Ongoing Formation on Communication for Educators, Youth Animators and Catechists, the main theological-pastoral theme of this conference is: “Communication and Mercy: A Fruitful Encounter”. This is based on Pope Francis’ Message on the 50th World Communication Day. The general objective of the three-day conference is for religious group leaders, teachers, youth animators and catechists, to have the opportunity to grow spiritually and professionally. Through the different workshops, they will have the chance to hone their skills as effective ministers. We have invited experts who will share their knowledge and experiences about the theme and the different workshops. The venue is at Don Bosco Formation Center, Lawaan, Talisay City, Cebu on October 19 to 21, 2016.
