VEYM/TNTT TRAINING CAMPS - FRANCE

This past week, history was made when a delegation of VEYM-USA members traveled to France to assist in a week long training camps. The last time VEYM-USA was there was exactly 22 years ago and it was during that time, the tragedy of Tr. Vincete Nguyen Duc Mau took place. Thanks be to God, all VEYM-USA members arrived home safely. The four training camps achieved outstanding results as reported by training camps participants and discussions are in place to expand VEYM/TNTT across Europe where appropriate. Please follow our Facebook's album for additional camp photos.

VEYM-USA'S GIFT TO VEYM/TNTT TO FRANCE

In the spirit of brotherhood and unity in Christ, along with the National Executive Committee (Ban Chấp Hành Trung Ương) and HLVs present, our General Chaplain (Tổng Tuyên Úy) presents our gift (VEYM/TNTT flag) to VEYM/TNTT France.

VEYM/TNTT US & FRANCE REMEMBER LH VINCENTE NGUYEN DUC MAU & LH GIUSE DO NGOC HUONG

In union with VEYM/TNTT in the US and France, a special mass intention was offered to pray for linh hồn Vincente Nguyễn Đức Mậu (from US) and Giuse Đỗ Ngọc Hương (from France), marking exactly 22 years since their passing following an automobile accident after a training camp in France. May God have mercy on their souls and may HE keep everyone safe as they en route to home destination. God bless!!!

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/

IMPORTANT - TRAINING CAMP SEASON 2019

Mùa huấn luyện sa mạc của chúng ta đã bắt đầu, xin thay mặt Ban Chấp Hành Trung Ương gởi đến quý Trưởng những đơn và thủ tục để hoàn tất phần phúc trình sa mạc. Thêm vào đó, để bảo vệ chúng ta và tránh những trường hợp dính liếu đến luật pháp, xin quý Trưởng lưu ý đến những điều sau:

BEFORE CAMP (Ban Tổ Chức & Sa Mạc Trưởng)

1. All camps must have liability insurance for the training camp hosted. Please contact Tr. Biên Nguyễn (VP Admin Affairs) at bien.nguyen@veym.net if you require assistance in securing liability insurance.

2. All camp participants (Tuyên Úy, Trợ Úy, HLVs, HTs, Trợ Tá, and Sa Mạc Sinh) must be an official member of the VEYM. As such, all camp participants must have a valid membership ID number and Chapter is current with annual membership dues. Please contact Tr. Viễn Hứa (Ủy Viên Kỷ Thuật, BCHTU) at vien.hua@veym.net for assistance as needed.

3. All camp participants (Tuyên Úy, Trợ Úy, HLVs, HTs, Trợ Tá, Parents, Helpers, Guest Speakers, and Sa Mạc Sinh) must be 18 years or older, especially with Cấp 1, please ensure an ID verification process is in place to prevent minors from participating.

4. All camp participants (Tuyên Úy, Trợ Úy, HLVs, HTs, Trợ Tá, Parents, Helpers, Guest Speakers, and Sa Mạc Sinh) must sign the liability waiver form attached. Those needing clarification on the liability form, please provide ample time for participants to ask questions and receive adequate response.

5. All HLVs must have current HLV faculty status with HLV ID card in order to train at camp.

6. Send a copy of the camp agenda and roster of SMS to Ban Chấp Hành Trung Ương at headquarters@veym.net two(2) weeks before the start of the training camp.

DURING CAMP (Sa Mạc Trưởng/Ban Huấn Luyện)

Theo lời yêu cầu của Cha Tổng Tuyên Úy và Ban Chấp Hành Trung Ương, xin quý Trưởng thực tập và nhấn mạnh 2 điều sau:

1. Emphasize to all training camp participants that their training as a Youth Leader does not end after Cấp 1, but ongoing and at minimum, at the completion of Cấp 3 Lãnh Đạo, Tiberia. BCHTU will open more Tiberia as needed to accommodate the needs of Phong Trào. We have approximately 80 applicants this year, a true blessing.

2. Pray the Anima Christi after Communion during Mass to help các sa mạc sinh grow closer to Christ and be united with Him in His Passion. St. Alphonsus Liguori once wrote “there is no prayer more dear to God than that which is made after communion.” He continued that our loving thoughts and prayers after communion have greater merit then than otherwise “because they are then animated by the presence of Jesus Christ, who is united to our souls.” Please see attachment in both English and Vietnamese.

AFTER CAMP (Sa Mạc Trưởng/Ban Huấn Luyện)

1. Please complete the training camp report (to be completed by SMT) attached and send back to headquarters@veym.net within 30 days after camp.

2. Please make available asap the link for Sa Mạc Sinh (only) to evaluate the camp immediately after the training camp: https://goo.gl/forms/rehzVzly2O4srOiJ3 (all camps will use the same link).

3. Please make available asap the link for Ban Huấn Luyện (only) to evaluate the Camp Master immediately after the training camp: https://goo.gl/forms/gBdZeMwTDGXmMQxG2(all camps will use the same link).

On behalf of the National Executive Committee (Ban Chấp Hành Trung Ương), thank you for your ongoing support, service and love to Phong Trào.

In His Love,

Đaminh Hoàng Công Thái Dương

President, National Executive Committee
