Over the final weekend of August, from the 23rd through the 25th, around 35 young Catholics gathered for a camp on the theme of Christus Vivit in Nummela. Fr. Eze Charles and a group of youth from Turku and Helsinki organized the event. This was the second diocesan-level youth event this year. The first one was World Youth Day in Finland last January, when we gathered in Helsinki. This time, we got together in a rented cottage near Nummela.
This is my third year living in Turku and being part of the parish youth group. After being member for a year, I started organizing activities with other friends. So new things are coming up, and people usually ask: What do you guys usually do?
My answer is: we do a little bit of everything.

To give you a better description, I will write down what we have been doing recently (or during this past year).
This is a blog about being young and Catholic in Finland.
