Dear all friends, priests, nuns, all chaplains, and bishops of Catholic Youth National Ministers throughout Asia.
Worship the Lord with joy!
Gladly I inform you that in the end of this month (December 2014), I finish my assignment in the office of Youth Commission for Indonesian Bishops’ Conference and therefore, someone who will replace this function is Father Antonius Haryanto (Fr Hary,firstname.lastname@example.org). Welcome Fr Hary in this linkages of Asian Youth Ministers.
From the bottom of my heart, I would like to say my thankfulness to all of you, of our togetherness, meaningfull journey, and joyful pilgrimage during seven years ago since 2008 I served this wonderful youth ministry. I beg your pardon for all my mistakes and all inconveniences rised by myself during our interactions.
Moreover, I am moving to a small parish in the city of Yogyakarta (Jogjakarta, Jogja or Yogja), an area which is a part of Arcdiocese of Semarang, in central Java. And also, thanks to God, Indonesian Bishops’ Conference has decided that Asian Youth Day 7th / 2017 will be held in Arcdiocese of Semarang, and will take places in entire diocese including my new homebase Jogjakarta. I hope we meet again in 2017 there for our AYD and YMM, because the Archbishop of Semarang, Mgr. Johanes Pujasumarta just also appointed me as a member of local committee for Asian Youth Day 2017. O wonderful love of God. Please kindly pray for us and all our preparations.
Praise the Lord for all his kindness…
God bless you and all works of youth ministry in Asia. I wish you a merry Christmas 2014 and a happy New Year 2015.
Sincerely in Jesus Christ,
Fr Yohanes Dwi Harsanto (Fr Santo).
