Join the CAS Squad
In response to the invitation of the Diocesan Youth Centre (DYC) – Mumbai, the DBYS youth joined the Carlo Acutis Squad on 03 January 2021. In imitation of the teenage saint, they distributed bedsheets to those who slept on the streets in Matunga and Wadala.
Before they went out to engage in this ministry, they participated in the celebration of a special Eucharist. Fr Velasli Bandya – the Province Vocation Animator – while breaking the Word of God, spoke to the youth of how the Feast of the Epiphany was an occasion for them to help those they were reaching out to, to have an epiphany of Jesus and see Christ in them. He also spoke to them of the life and sanctity of Carlo Acutis and encouraged them to follow in his footsteps.
It was heartening to see the youth listen attentively to the life of Carlo Acutis, engage with those on the street, especially the elderly, and help them cover themselves in the winter cold.
