A regional survey on Asian Youth and the Eucharist 2008 has been released at the 9th FABC Plenary in Manila on August 14. 2009. The very detailed survey shows results from 1200 young respondents. Beside others the survey asks for the motivation for receiving Holy Communion, the knowledge of the parts of the Holy Mass, the respondent’s participation in the Eucharistic celebration, the effects of the Eucharist in the daily life of the Youth. All data are presented and analyzed for pastoral consequences which underline especially the need for an effective Catechesis on the Eucharist.

It is planned to extend the service also into the different local Bishops’ conferences. The survey will also help to indicate a road map for the program of the FABC Youth desk in the years to come.

The publication is available at FABC – OLF – Youth Desk, Maryhill Compound, Ortigas Ave. Ext. Km 22, Taytay, Rizal, Philippines or email to [email protected]140809
