It was a cool October night in 1978. Entrusted with the task of mobilising youth from all over Kerala, I was returning with our animator to Cochin after a meeting with Fr. Fio Mascarenhas, the National Chairman of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal in India. His vision for the follow-up of the large youth Conference we recently held in Kerala rang clear in our ears. “So many youth have already come together,” he said. “Communities of formation reaching out with a sense of mission”, he added, “must be your vision”.
