THE SEED PROGRAMME, is an annual Catholic outreach and faith formation programme for Form 1 & 2 students, organised by the Sarawak Catholic Teachers’ Guild and facilitated (supported) by the SEED18 Outreach Team (comprising of various partnering youth ministries and groups), over the weekend of 15th – 17th September 2018 at the Archdiocesan Curia and Cathedral Pastoral Centre (A.C.C.P.C).
The core message of this programme is to introduce JESUS into the lives of the young people. When good SEED is planted, and with adequate nourishments and essentials to grow, it will naturally bear fruit!
At this age of Form 1 & 2, many may not see the significance and importance of JESUS in their life but it’s never too young to sow the SEED – SEED that will last, SEED that will bear much fruit in time to come. In this programme, the young people will be given a chance to commit their lives to JESUS as their personal Savior, Lord and Redeemer.
The theme for SEED18 is “LIFE: The Greatest Journey” – drawing inspiration from the verse PSALM 139:14; primarily focuses on current mental health issues and trends that young people of this modern age face, struggle and battle with – such as depression, addictions (drugs, alcohol, smoking, porn), peer-pressure & rejection, violence, abuse & bullying, materialism, self-esteem & identity loss, etc.
We hope that through the talks, worship sessions and various interactions (skits, creative arts presentations, small group discussion, sharing and activities) based on the theme – which draws its creative inspiration from the movie musical: “The Greatest Showman”; these participants will encounter anew the great love of a heavenly Father that generously and wonderfully created us in His image, while gifting us His beloved Son (JESUS) as Hope for our Salvation!
A highlight of THE SEED18 programme this year is THE SEED Family Movie Nite and THE SEED Family Nite Potbless Dinner Fellowship!
Many youths have been blessed through the previous SEED programme, with some coming back to serve as facilitators and volunteers. Looking forward towards another God-anointed, life-transforming experience, we believe this year’s SEED will be no exception. We strongly encourage all Form 1 & 2 students to attend! Those older, who wish to help as volunteers are welcome.
