Jo-I Villas, the guests speaker from the "Live Pure Movement" started his talk with a song to introduce his topic on how to“Live Pure”. He emphasized some important things about love and sex. All that he discussed mirror the present situation and experience of the young people of today's generation and they served as a challenge to all who were present to live in chastity and to be prayerful, to prepare themselves to the future responsibilities, and not to be hasty in their decision making--because all that they look forward to will come in time as the Lord wills it.
After his conference, two of his companions in the Live Pure Movement, Janessa San Juan and Terrence Untalan, shared their own experiences on how with the grace of God, they changed their outlook in life.
The celebration of the Holy Mass followed the talks. Msgr. Leandro Castro, together with Fr. Gian Carlo Alvarez, presided over the Mass.
The Congress became successful through the help of the PYC of St. Ferdinand Cathedral, Msgr. Castro, Fr. Warren Puno, and Fr. Gian Alvarez. (Seff Marciano)
