A Bangladesh Catholic Students' Movement (BCSM) unit in the Khulna diocese on May 20 held a study session on the topic "Role of youth in Synodal Church.”
The main focus of the discussion was anchored on “At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea” (Luke 1:39).
The event took place at Dakshindihi, Fultola Khulna, southwestern Bangladesh.
The members reached the destination after a four-hour boat journey from the Rupsa Ferry terminal through the Bhairab River at 8 in the morning.
“We discussed the issues and concerns that affect the church in Bangladesh and find ways how we all can participate in the mission of Christ,” said Sourav Saha, a member of the National Executive Council of BCSM.
The members clarified several doubts on various matters of the Synod and other aspects of the church, faith, and mission.
Saurav Khalko, a diocesan representative from Khulna, spoke on BCSM's organizational structure, mission and vision.
In his talk, BCSM representative Nicholas Ujjjal Halder explained the forthcoming diocesan conference of BCSM.
He also focused on forming committees to recruit new members to the youth organization.
As many as 26 young men and women attended the event.
Organizers thanked the participants and all those who helped to arrange the program.
Established in 1991, BCSM is a movement for college and university-going Catholic students in Bangladesh.
It promotes Christian values and motivates youngsters to uphold moral values. It is affiliated with International Movement for Catholic Students (IMCS) and Episcopal Commission for Youth.
