His Holiness Participates in SOYGOS Youth Event

His Holiness Mor Ignatius Aphrem II participated in a Youth Conference and Q&A held by the Syrian Orthodox Youth Group of Sydney (SOYGOS) at the Australian Catholic University in Strathfield.

More than 200 young people participated in the event. Their Eminences: Mor Malatius Malki Malki, Patriarchal Vicar in Australia & New Zealand, and Mor Nicodemus Daoud Sharaf, Metropolitan of Mosul, Kurdistan and their Environs also attended.

The gathering was opened by prayers; then talks were given welcoming His Holiness. The youth then had the chance to ask their questions directly to His Holiness who answered all the questions.

During the gathering, His Holiness spoke to the youth about the role of the Syriac family in bringing up the children on the faith of the church and strengthening their relation to the Church. He also spoke about the problems that the youth are facing and suggested ways to solve these problems and get closer to God and the Church.
