New Delhi:

A Christian youth festival in New Delhi has taken the initiative to unite the community youth and bring them together at one platform.

Some 500 Christian youth from various denominations are expected to take part in the one-day UVA (United V Are in Christ) fest on Sept. 29.

“It is sad that Christian youth these days are not aware about their religion and the different denominations in it,” said Anuj Mathew, convener of UVA 2012.

He said that the festival, which would be held at St Michael’s School, aims to bring them together and make them aware about different churches.

The festival would include interactive sessions, theatre, symbol interpretation, counseling sessions and performances by leading Christian bands of the city.

Mathew said that they first organized the fest last year and after getting a positive response, they planned to go ahead this year too.

“In future, we are also planning to hold this festival after 3 or 6 months depending on the response we get from the youth,” he added.

The festival, which would be held under the theme Mission Possible, is organized by a group of youth nominated by different churches of Delhi.

The festival is supported by Bible Society of India (BSI) and Indian Catholic Youth Movement, the youth wing of the Delhi archdiocese.

Fr. Victor D’Souza of the archdiocese said, “Some people of good will thought of unity of all the Christians of Delhi. Let us all youth unite and work together to spread the Good News.”

Richard G Khan, BSI secretary, said that the festival is certainly a step in the right direction.
