Problems with transmission of faith to youth in PNG

There are problems with the transmission of faith to youth in Papua New Guinea.  (ll existe un problème de foi et de spiritualité parmi les nouvelles générations de Papouasie Nouvelle Guinée. Parmi les jeunes.)

This is what a document recently issued by Fr. Shanthi Chako PIME, Secretary of the Commission for Youth and Laity within the Episcopal Conference of Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands, says.

Bishop Bernard Unabali  of Bougainville, says in the past, the family ensured “adequate formation in prayer, spirituality and faith”, but now this process has been weakened or stopped.
