About 140 youths gathered at Our Lady of Wayside Parish in Mt Pleasant for yet another Magis Resolution Day aimed at encouraging youths to make Christocentric resolutions for the year 2016.

Br. Ngonidzashe Edward SJ, a delegate for the Jesuit Youth Ministry and St Ignatius College chaplain, Fr. Ignatius Padya S.J facilitated the day’s proceedings.

In a session led by Br. Edward, the youths meditated upon their lives to make more spiritual resolutions which are centred on Christ.

Fr. Ignatius Padya was the celebrant in a youthful and uplifting mass in which the youths were invited to contemplate on the values of the Lord’s word and to reflect upon their own resolutions. “To be a Christian is a choice that comes with tough consequences just like St. Paul said ‘I have become a fool for the sake of the kingdom of God’, but people might not know that the foolishness is ‘holy foolishness’” said Fr Padya.

Magis Coordinator Mr. Hamadziripi Chinhoyi challenged the youths to go into the world and ‘ignite someone’ to do good this year.
