Our weekly gatherings from 7:30PM - 10:00PM, every Friday.
Empowered Weekend Away (EWA) is a preparatory programme for young adults – mainly senior youths especially Form 5 & 6 Leavers and College & University students – to stock-take their lives, as they progress from “junior-youth-hood” into a new chapter of their lives as young adults. Some may consider working or furthering their studies (locally or overseas).
In this Weekend Away, we strive to evangelize, educate, inspire, encourage and support all young people in our church. Through a deeper appreciation and relationship with JESUS in their lives, they will begin to understand the power of the Eucharist and its relevance in their lives. We wish to assist young people to experience and understand the richness of Christian life within the context of the Catholic faith.
I could feel God’s love through spending time with joyful friends, half of which I just met. I feel more equipped to defend my Catholic faith.
Serving in EWA16 taught me that humility is important. During the pray over, I felt God again after a long time…Everybody has a chance to experience Him and all it takes is the courage to say yes to the offer given.
Mass for me used to be just a symbol, a reminder of Jesus’ love for us. Now I know that, really, the Eucharist is a reliving of His great sacrifice; that we can experience His love for ourselves every time we participate in mass.
EWA16 was a life-changing journey for me. I learned that all of us are anointed by God. There’s always a purpose to every situation and we need to put our trust in Jesus. I’ve learnt how to let things go, move on and learn from it. Praise the Lord for changing my perceptions toward life now.
We learned to get closer to God. We, as Catholics, must have stronger faith. Throughout EWA it’s a great experience and it’s interesting to learn more about our Catholic faith.
