The Church in Malta officially welcomed back young people from their summer experiences with ‘World Café’ – an event held yesterday evening, Tuesday 27th September, at Savio College, Dingli. Over 130 paticipants gathered around specially-arranged coffee tables to share their personal stories from voluntary service, missionary work and the World Youth Day pilgrimage during summer.

Archbishop Paul Cremona O.P. addressed the youth through a telephone conversation as he could not attend the event. Mgr Cremona expressed his regret at not being physically present but said that he could nonetheless sense their joy and enthusiasm.

World Café was a creative development of the annual Welcoming Back event. This year’s edition was organised by the group SPYS (Salesian Pastoral Youth Services) and co-ordinated by the Youth Commission within the Church (KDZ).
