The Dominican Youth Movement of Trinidad and Tobago (DYMTT) celebrated mission month by hosting a retreat for teenagers of St. Dominic’s Children’s Home. It was held on Sunday 16th October, 2016 and was delivered to fifteen (15) participants. The theme of the retreat was ‘Seek the Truth, Speak the Truth’. The purpose was to help the youth reflect on the value of truth in their life.

The retreat began with Lectio Divina using the Sunday gospel. The parable of the judge and the widow (Luke 18:1-8) allowed for reflection on the importance of perseverance and seeking truth in prayer.

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean but the ocean would be less because of that missing drop”. Mother Theresa


For the missionary month of October, we as DYMZim carried out two charity activities. Our fist activity was to clean up one of the church offices at St John of Cologne Mass centre. We took the burden off the parish council by volunteering to clean the church office. We carried out this activity on the 8th of October 2016. As a way of doing charity work as well as acting upon one of our four Dominican pillars (Service), we used brooms and cleaning liquids to brush off the dirt of the office walls. This was a very tiring task but it brought us together as one strong group through good team work.

The Last year was very busy for our community, in particular we did various activities, many of which have been consolidated in those years already. We use the charity works to grow as a group, to strengthen our personal relationship and especially to be active Christians, and transform in this way our formation meetings in concrete works. 

 

The first mission, which we undertook in October 2015, was the fundraising and food collection for Sister Bianca, an Italian nun, who was transferred in Romania, near the ukrainian border, after many years of service in Bolzano, to performs service in a convent, that needs help for hospitality, education and care giving to children. At the end of the collection, we have loaded on a truck all the non-perishable food, some furnishings, clothes and other helpful objects. The collected money, instead, was deposited on the sister’s account, to help her with the payment of bills, teachers and perishable food. The food collection and the direct transport, with the thanksgiving photos of Sister Bianca near the arrived truck, helps a lot parishioner’s  confidence about donation.
