Also Jesuit Father Emmanuel, parish priest of Sittong, joined the Eucharistic concelebration marking solemnity of St Thomas the apostle on Wednesday, 3rd July.

The program which started on Tuesday morning on 2nd July had Ice-Breaking session and Biblical Act competitions. The winners of the Biblical Act competition announced on 4th July were: 1st - Immaculate Heart of Mary (Takdah Parish); 2nd - Immaculate Conception of Mary (Cathedral Church Darjeeling), and 3rd - Don Bosco Parish (Mirik).

The winners of the Cultural Competitions held on Wednesday 3rd July were: 1st - Sacred Heart Church (Singamari Darjeeling); 2nd - St Teresa of Child Jesus Parish (Sonada), and 3rd - St Mary's Church (Kankeybong).

The best parish group prize for over all performance at Youth Exuberant 2019 went to  Sacred Heart Parish Dhajea Busty.

ICYM Joint Treasurer Miss Prisca Subba from Lebong Darjeeling lamented the fact of low attendance of youth at the camp saying, ''The Jesuits and Salesians give priority to their own youth groups like CLC and SYM while ICYM is left with the diocese.''
