As a part of exciting line ups for the Parish’s iconic 2018 Harvest programme themed “Harvest of God’s Love”, St. Dominic Parish, Yaba, Lagos will launch GIFTED, an annual talent hunt showcase for the Catholic faithful.
Billed for presentation on the 15th of July 2018 at the Parish, the Talent Hunt Showcase in its maiden edition will be open to individual or group performances of a spiritual or secular nature across various talent strata and genres.
These categories include music, dance, drama, comedy and several others.
Speaking on the relevance of the initiative and its uniqueness, the youth chaplain of the Parish, Rev. Fr. Richard Odok, OP stated that GIFTED is an initiative aimed at harnessing the creative elements of youths with the society in all genres of creativity within St. Dominic and the Catholic Church at large.
“St. Dominic’s is our treasure and pride because it is a haven for many Catholics in the whole of the metropolitan Archdiocese of Lagos.
We have over 50 societies and ministries and actively encourage parishioners to participate and express their faith.” Rev. Fr. Richard continued by explaining that the Parish’s vast talent pool and demographics informed the choice to launch GIFTED.
“With over 40,000 registered parishioners where 60% are young people, we had to create a platform that celebrates the numerous talents that our youth embody. This is exactly why we have taken our time to package this programme in a way that it can continue to serve the talent purpose on an annual basis.”
He further enjoined interested youths interested in participating to get their forms on Sunday at the Parish or online at www.stdominicsyaba.org
Provisions for branded gift items to support participants have been made and other forms of support are warmly welcome.
May the Lord of the Harvest continue to enrich you as support our GIFTED ones.
