In his presentation he stated the causes and consequences of the Culture of Death and he finally exhorted that we need to do something before we arrive at doom's day. The third speaker Cl. Clement Mathera enlightened the gathering on the topic 'An attempt towards a Christian response to the culture of death among youth. In his talk, he plunged deep into the message given by His holiness Pope Benedict XVI ''Planted and built up in Jesus Christ, firm in faith'' (Col 2:7), on the Twenty-Sixth World Youth Day to be held in Madrid, Spain in August 2011.
The presentations were followed by a panel discussion and thereafter a vote of thanks was presented by Cl. Avison Fernandes. He specially thanked Rev. Fr.
