National Living the Eucharistic Day Campaign
Dearest Chaplains, Chaplain Assistants, Youth Leader Trainers, Youth Leaders, and youth members of all ranks:
As members of the Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Movement (VEYM), we are called to live the Eucharistic Day each day in union with the Sacred Heart of Jesus. In preparation for the Resurrection Christ, a time for renewed hope and faith, the National Executive Committee invites all members to partake in this historic first VEYM National Living the Eucharistic Day Campaign. In gradual progression, the campaign aims to foster understanding of the importance of living the Eucharistic Day and promote desirable practices leading to a more prayerful lifestyle.
In union with VEYM Chapters across the country, all Chapters are charged with the responsibly of educating, motivating and encouraging Chapter members to actively participate in in this campaign daily. More importantly, Youth Leaders have the responsibility to model and remind youth members on the importance of living the Eucharistic Day.
VEYM National Living the Eucharistic Day Campaign
All members at minimum are charged with the following participation daily:
A printed Living the Eucharistic Day Handbook is available for all Companion (Nghĩa Sĩ) members and up at no cost to assist with this campaign. Youth Leaders are invited to use the materials to assist youth members to understand the meaning and importance of aspects of living the Eucharistic Day. A printed colorful Living the Eucharistic Day Prayer Card is also available for all members at no cost to use with this campaign as a guide and reminder. Please click on the link below as soon as possible to make a request for timely delivery before Easter. While the materials are at no cost to all chapters, donations are welcomed. https://forms.gle/mQXM3VSHghXCmc1D8
The success of this campaign relies heavily on Chapter Youth Leaders to educate Chapter members and to remind, motivate and encourage active participation weekly. All Chapters Executive Committees are invited report percent of participation in similar manner as the Spiritual Bouquet to offer to Jesus in the Eucharist. Please click on the links below to report at the end of each phase:
Recognition: All Chapters with the highest percentage of members participating between 67-100% of the times for all phases of the campaign will receive a personalized honor/award hand delivered by a member of the National Executive Committee.
For questions relating to this campaign, please contact Tr. Giuse Đào Văn Đức, V.P. of Academic Affairs, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is our hope that through this campaign, VEYM members will embrace a life of prayer and have a more intimate relationship with Jesus. As members of the Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Movement, we must actively live the Eucharistic Day daily.
