From the 5th – 7th of February, over 100 youth workers from these regions gather(ed) in Beirut for a time of worship, prayer, practical workshops and general sessions that will encourage them to reach out to their communities from many different faith backgrounds.
- for youth workers to be encouraged to reach out to their communities & mobilise their youth to do likewise with their friends.
- for the youth workers coming from places in Syria & Iraq to attend. Many of them will have to pass through conflict areas to attend Katalyst Beirut.
