SUICIDE PREVENTION WEEK - CHARITY GIVING

This past week was suicide prevention week and with suicide as the #1 leading cause of death for Asian American and Pacific Islander youth aged 12-19, no better way to end the week than to present to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) a donation check from the VEYM/TNTT in the amount of $7,275.00 to support their on going work on suicide prevention.

If you or anyone you know who may be wrestling with suicidal thoughts, please reach out. We care! There's hope. You are not alone and we can help. Call 24/7, 800-273-8255 (TALK).

The AFSP was nominated by one of the Leagues of Chapters and was randomly selected by the General Chaplain to receive 50% of our fundraising efforts from Facebook Giving Tuesday last year. Mr. Connor Jobes, Manager of Federal Policy, received the check on behalf of the AFSP.

THANK YOU ALL VEYM/TNTT MEMBERS FOR YOUR GENEROUS CONTRIBUTIONS. 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/
