FJT- Franciscan Youth Movement in Netherlands
Franciscaans Jongerentreffen(FJT) - Franciscan Youth Movement has been organised for the young people by the Friars of the Netherlands since 2000 in Megan situated along the river Maas. This faith festival was held this year from October 5th to 7th for the thirteenth time. There were 44 youth from different parts of the Netherlands. The theme around which the youth prayed, reflected, shared and celebrated was LE(E)F! LEEF means to live and LEF means courage. It was indeed inspiring as each one shared the moment of Courage in one's life and also the meaning and purpose of life. Through various workshops from Biblical stories to Cooking, the youth were led to discover themselves. The prayer services were specially prepared to suit the youth and the theme and it was indeed a real moment of encounter with God as the youth sat down praying. These three days were certainly days of experience of Franciscan Spirituality and the life style of the friars for the youth. The youth departed to home cherishing these joyful days!
