From July 18 to 25, as part of the summer activities for young people and Christian students, our sister Franceline Hien had the joy of leading a training session called “SKIKNABA” with four priests in the diocese of Constantine and Hippo in Algeria.
This year more than twenty Christian students took part in this formation activity. There were four workshops: one on knowledge of the Bible, one on the influence of social networks in student life, one on the introduction to the Arabic alphabet and a final workshop on sexuality and Christian life. We started in Skikda from Monday to Thursday morning, then continued to Annaba to finish on Monday morning. I liked the program of the session and the way the workshops were organized. We had four hours each day for the workshops. At the end of a day, each animator had spent an hour with each of the groups. I liked the atmosphere and appreciated the spirit that animated the group; the animator as well as students from start to finish.
We had mass every morning and vespers together every evening. Moments of recreation and common or personal relaxation. It was for me a beautiful experience of missionary animation and sharing with young people. I was able to facilitate this session thanks to the diversity of the Tangaza curriculum which trained us to be all for all in order to live our “All to all.”
