NATIONAL SPIRITUAL BOUQUET - A MONTH OF PRAYER

Big picture

Dearest League of Chapters and Chapter Executive Committees:

The National Leadership Council (Hội Đồng Lãnh Đạo) has established the first Sunday of October each year as the VEYM’s National Day of Prayer. This year, our National Day of Prayer will fall on October 6th, 2019. With October also as the month of the Holy Rosary, the National Executive Committee (Ban Chấp Hành Trung Ương) invites all members of the Movement to pray and recite the Rosary often and actively participate in this year’s Spiritual Bouquet to love and honor Mary, for through Mary, we may receive Her Son in the most perfect way.

The Rosary, a simple yet invaluable prayer, familiar but full of appeal. The history of the Church has proven its mystical power of the Rosary. Through centuries, many Papacies have taught and encouraged devotion to the Rosary. Most notably, Pope Pius IX through his intense effort to promote devotion to the Rosary through granting many apostolic indulgences for those who are faithful to praying the Rosary in October. On the 13th of October, Mary roclaimed “I am the Mother of the Rosary”, since then, October has become the month of the
Rosary.

The Spiritual Bouquet Campaign will begin on October the 6th, VEYM’s National Day of Prayer, through the 31st. All Youth Leaders are invited to print the attached prayer worksheets and disseminate to all members accordingly. Please review the guideline thoroughly and articulate to youth members clearly. While the Spiritual Bouquet only emphasize participation from Seedling (Ấu Nhi), Search (Thiếu Nhi), Companion (Nghĩa Sĩ), Knights (Hiệp Sĩ), and Youth Leaders (Huynh Trưởng) within each Chapter, all Lay Chaplain Assistants (Trợ Tá) are also invited to partake in the Spiritual Bouquet via self-directed recitation of the Rosary weekly.

Jesus has taught us, “For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.” Matthew 18:20. In the same manner, the Spiritual Bouquet approach this year will invite members to pray together with partners. In praying with one another, we may grow in a deeper connection with each other and enter a more intimate relationship with Jesus.

It is with profound hope that all League of Chapters and Chapter Executive Committee members motivate and remind all members to take part in the Spiritual Bouquet Campaign.

For inquiries, please contact the National Executive Committee Liturgical Sub-Committee Lead (Ủy Viên Phụng Vụ) directly, Tr. Elizabeth Phạm Chi at liz.c.pham@veym.net.

May Jesus in the Eucharist, through the intercession of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, bless you with His grace, love and peace.

NATIONAL CATHOLIC YOUTH CONFERENCE 2019

Big picture

The NCYC is a gathering of 25,000+ youth that is hosted by the National Federation of Catholic Youth Ministry. The conference takes place every two years, and includes workshops, prayer times, and many activities that will inspire and move youth in their faith journeys. NCYC’s goal is to help youth encounter Christ, experience church, and be empowered for discipleship.

In 2017, the Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Movement (VEYM) was asked to participate in NCYC in a very special way – leading the conference opening procession, performing a cultural dance in the opening ceremony and serving in the opening prayer session. We had over 35 VEYM members from various Chapters in Liên Đoàn John Paul 2 and Liên Đoàn Joan of Arc, formally known as Miền Trung and Miền Đông Nam respectively, there to participate. It was an amazing opportunity for our youth to share their love for Christ with the young Church of America. Videos of their participation can be found here at https://youtu.be/xpo6FvT2IS8 and
https://youtu.be/qtW0ET-KLFc.

The next NCYC is from November 21-23, 2019, in Indianapolis, Indiana. The event is open to 9th-12th graders, recent high school graduates, and their chaperones. NCYC is a great opportunity for our young Vietnamese Catholics to experience the universal Church outside of our own parishes. Therefore, all Chapters are encouraged to prayerfully consider attending the 2019 NCYC. Our strong attendance at NCYC also helps to promote the diversity of the Catholic Church in America, and we would be so excited to have you represent VEYM at a national event like this!

How to Register:
NCYC accepts and processes registrations by Diocesan delegation only. Therefore, any VEYM Chapters or that would like to coordinate your group to attend, must register through your local diocese delegation. Many dioceses are beginning to promote registration within their dioceses already. Because the travel distance is different for every delegation, cost to attend varies by diocese and typically includes travel, lodging and conference fee. There are also opportunities through the National Federation of Catholic Youth Ministers for youth scholarships.

Scholarship:
If you are interested in taking a group from your Chapter or League, please contact Tr. Chi Pham Liz Chi Pham at chipham.sasjhparish@gmail.com for more information on scholarship and early-bird registration for NCYC is June. Tr. Chi will help get you connected to your diocesan delegation, keep you informed of scholarship opportunities, help us coordinate any specific VEYM activities while at NCYC, etc. Tr. Chi Pham will also be representing the VEYM and coordinating with all Chapters/League of Chapters in attendance.

At 1.02 seconds. VEYM/TNTT at the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) in 2017. For more info on the next NCYC 2019, please see FB feed and speak with Tr. Liz Chi Pham. As of now, we have a delegation of 40 members representing the VEYM/TNTT.http://www.ncyc.info/
