APOSTOLIC PRIORITIES of the BOMBAY PROVINCE
Youth Ministry: The Synod on Youth in 2018 is a Kairos moment, calling us as members of the Church, to accompany the young in their life journey. Within our province there is a feeling that youth in general and rural youth in particular, have been neglected in our apostolic outreach. While we continue to minister to youth within our institutions, we will make a special effort to reach youth who lie beyond our current circle of contacts, especially those from the unorganized sector. Another aspect of this ministry consists of building up a cadre of socially conscious youth capable of critical thinking.
Retreat Ministry: We will redouble our efforts at making the Spiritual Exercises available to a larger number of people, especially the laity. Faithful to the spirit of St. Ignatius, we will creatively adapt our presentation of the Exercises, borrowing if necessary best practices used in other groups. Better use will be made of modern means of communication to break new ground with new audiences.
