January 18, 2011
The Sisters of the Cross took 125 young people to Amravati, Maharashtra, to experience national unity through diversity to celebrate the International Year of the Youth.
Sister Sangeeta Pereira, the congregation’s youth activities coordinator in Amravati district, described the program as “a small investment” to help youths decide their own, as well as the nation’s future.
“We have a collective responsibility to ensure youths get enough exposure and proper understanding of different cultures, languages, and religions in the country,” the nun told ucanews.com.
