Crossroads is a new divine initiative taken by the KEY Amalities, ICC Dombivli Youth Executives to get down at root level and reach out to youth. Crossroads is basically a platform to provide a suitable ground level forum to discuss the requirements of the youth, to understand their problems and to find out an alternative to solve serious problems faced by the young faithful. The initiative was introduced on 6th August, 2017, where 34 youth members participated with elegance.
The event began with a small introductory prayer followed by various interesting activities through which the young minds got to know about each other which made the environment much familiar to each one of them. The youth were divided on the basis of “working youth” and “studying youth” and they discussed on preparatory document relating to Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment. A member of Crossroads remarked that “I thank everyone who worked and thought about such a great platform so that we can discuss our problems and this literally gives us space which can make a change and a change is all we need in this era.
As per the data, between 10-15 percent of teenagers have some symptoms of depression at any one time and in these days, it becomes important to have such a platform for the youth to share their problems in order to overcome the challenges with strength and faith and thus the initiative taken by the KEY Amalities is appreciated by the Kalyan Diocese.
