CBCP encourages youth ministers to join teen sexuality workshop

MANILA, March 14, 2012— The CBCP Episcopal Commission on Youth (ECY) is inviting youth directors and ministers in the parishes, schools and organizations nationwide to attend the workshop on “Teaching Teachers on Teen Sexuality Workshop” being organized by Pro-Life Philippines.

ECY executive secretary Fr. Conegundo Garganta urged diocesan youth directors, coordinators and leaders of member-organization of the Federation of National Youth Organization (FNYO) to participate in the event scheduled on May 17-19 at the St. Joseph Retreat House in Sampaloc, Manila.
Garganta together with the National Secretariat for Youth Apostolate (NSYA) trusts that youth collaborators will strongly consider the invitation.
Organizers on the other hand said that the training/seminar aims to strengthen the ability of the participants to respond to the needs of today’s teens with respect to issues on human sexuality, marriage, family planning and population education according to the teachings of the Catholic Church.
“Furthermore, this year’s seminar is designed to further the participants’ knowledge and understanding of the problems of Aids in the country as well as to dissect the objectionable provisions of the RH bill like the mandatory sex education from grade 5 to 4th year high school,” they said.
“Participants will be trained to implement training modules on teen sexuality packaged in the manual titled “Learning to Live and Love” and will be provided updated supplementary activity and reading materials,” they added.
The seminar-workshop requires a fee of Php 1,500, inclusive of snacks, meals, handouts and certificate, from participants.
