"The meeting was held at the Catechists Formation Center in Andriamboasary, about 6 km from the city center of Fianarantsoa. Out of the 116 participants, 65 were women and 51 were men. Upon their arrival, the young people gathered for a moment of reflection before attending the conference on "What is Sexuality" and the "Knowledge of one’s body" lab.
After dinner, Sister Florentine of the Emmanuel Community, and Brother Berthieu of the Brothers of the Christian Doctrine offered their testimony of life. The day ended with the Eucharistic adoration. On May 28 there was a conference on the theme: "True Love" followed by some testimonies. At the end of the day the group met for an assessment of this initiative. Young people expressed, almost unanimously, their desire to participate in the next edition", concludes Fr. Albert.
