The Picnic was started with a reconciliation Prayer.
There were also welcome speeches, acknowledgement and word of appreciation, Games and fun. There was a Cake dance performed by Br.

It was also a farewell picnic for some of us who will leave. Huge thanks to May Thugea who will leave, for all your cooperation and hard work while with us, moreover to the old members who will to be with us again ( Alex, Joana, Hynes and Goretty)
At about 5pm , Youth all gathered on the beach together to conclude the program with 2 glorious mystery decades given by Sr. Theresa op, and was followed with signing of peace among us.
The day was so fine and ended up joyously that we all returned home safely with joy and happiness.
