SPYS live-In

On the last week-end of September, SPYS members gathered at Dar Stella
Maris, in Żebbuġ Gozo, for their annual live-in, at the beginning of the pastoral
year. Members from SPYS.Int (international volunteering), YES (Senglea
summer camp) and DBYN Malta joined together to share experiences and
ideas. Particulalry, the relevance of SPYS in today’s Church and fluid society,
and ways to reach more young people in the respective groups, were
discussed. The points discussed will serve as a reference point for this year’s
pastoral programme.

Through this live-in, new SPYS team members, particularly those who made a
voluntary experience with SPYS this Summer, were officially welcomed. New
members shared their views on SPYS and its potential, based on their
experience throughout the past year.

On Saturday, two seminars were given by Fr. Antoine Farrugia SDB and Bryan
Magro, on Salesian spirituality and positive leadership respectively. On Sunday,
the live-in ended with the celebration of mass by Fr. Paul Formosa SDB, who
was present for this week-end, giving his support and input throughout.
