Some 450 college and university students, three bishops, dozens of priests, nuns, brothers and animators attended the 37th National Youth Day celebrations at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral Church in Dinajpur Diocese from March 24-27.
Participants included members of the Bengali community and ethnic indigenous groups such as the Garo, Santal, Tripura, Oraon and Paharia. The Catholic bishops' Episcopal Commission for Youth organized the program titled "Mary arose and went with haste”.
The four-day event included a rally, prayers, meditation, themed talks, cultural programs and sharing sessions.
