National Youth Coordinating Council 2018

2018 September 15-16 (Saturday-Sunday)

St. Peter’s College Seminary, Brgy. Concepcion, San Pablo City

Convened on this Year of the Clergy and Consecrated Persons and looking forward to
the Year of the Youth, the National Youth Coordinating Council 2018 will serve as a
venue for youth ministers coordinating and representing their respective Regional
Youth Coordinating Councils to strengthen their commitment as servant-leaders, called
and chosen by Christ and striving to closely follow His example, and to review how
youth ministries are participating in the ongoing novena of the Philippine Catholic
Church towards 2021, the 500th anniversary of the Catholic faith in our country.

Youth Ministers: Called and Chosen

“I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you” [Jn 13:15]

--From KA-LAKBAY: Directory for Catholic Youth Ministry in the Philippines:

“To promote adequate representation and collaboration of youth ministers, the ECY
created the National Youth Coordinating Council in 1984. Meetings of the council are
held annually. When convened, it functions as the advisory body of the ECY, and serves
as a clearinghouse of all youth activities, programs and resources.

The NYCC serves to identify youth ministry concerns that need to be brought to the
attention of the ECY. These concerns may come from their own region or may be
identified as a national concern. It also proposes definite plans of action and/or
resolutions that address these concerns concretely and accordingly. Then, it submits
these plans of actions or resolutions to the ECY for its further study and approval or
disapproval.” (KA-LAKBAY, p. 164)

The Episcopal Commission on Youth invites

to this Coordinating Council Meeting
the Regional Youth Directors, Coordinators and Leaders
of the nine (9) Regional Youth Coordinating Councils,
as well as youth ministers representing the FNYO Coordinating Council.

Animated by Christian servant-leadership, the NYCC2018 meeting aims to:

1. Present the ECY decisions to the NYCC2017 Resolutions, and revisit or initially
map the implementation
2. Gather the support of all the RYCCs in coordinating and implementing the 2019
Year of the Youth programs and in spearheading and monitoring other related
and relevant initiatives—both in their respective regions
3. Strengthen the coordination ad intra and ad extra of each RYCC, especially in
relation to the national network of youth ministries, towards a sustained
experience of communion in mission.

Other Important Instructions


Each RYCC is asked to register using the reply slip sent with the invitation. The ECY
earnestly requests that all accomplished slips be sent back to the ECY not later than
August 30.


The meeting begins after breakfast on September 15; everyone invited is expected to be
present at breakfast time at 07.00.

On September 16 the following day, at lunchtime, the meeting ends. Everyone is asked
to set their travel schedules with respect to the set meeting schedule.


To achieve the objectives of the meeting and to foster fellowship and collaboration,
everyone is requested to be fully present for the entire duration of the meeting.


For this NYCC2018, no solidarity share will be collected from registered participants,
whether official or observer.

5. ID

Each participant is requested to bring his/her NCYM2018 ID to be used during this

meeting. Having an ID fosters familiarity, and using what was provided in the pre-
NYCC conference allows us to minimize expenses and save energy.


Through the invited youth ministers, the ECY makes an appeal to their respective
Bishops for assistance in covering the transportation expenses.

On its part, the ECY will subsidize ten percent (10%) of the transportation expenses of
each official participant, provided that an official receipt is made available by the
official participant to the ECY Secretariat during reception.


Throughout the meeting, everyone is enjoined to wear suitable and comfortable attire
(i.e. business casual-relaxed, smart casual).

Contents may be changed. There may also be further information. These will be
communicated by the ECY to those concerned by email. The ECY therefore asks
everyone invited to regularly check their email, and to send by email any NYCC-related
concern they may have.


The animation of the meeting (i.e. liturgies, icebreakers, etc.) will be a shared endeavor
with the participating RYCCs. Each RYCC is therefore invited to be ready and willing
to take on several tasks during the meeting.
