Radio Nova de Maria - Cape Verde
Some of Cabo Verde’s youth representatives recently met with diocesan authorities in Praia, the nation's capital. They met under the leadership of Arlindo Cardinal Gomes Furtado, the Bishop of Santiago. According to Fr José Cabral, the meeting listened to the concerns, challenges and successes of the Diocesan Youth Secretariat.
Fr Cabral further said diocesan youth representatives felt encouraged by Cardinal Arlindo, who assured the youth leadership and all the youth of his support to youth ministry.
The Diocese of Santiago has since said apart from preparations for WYD Lisbon 2023, the diocese is also focussing its attention to 24 April, the day for the diocesan music Festival.
