….that 52 young adults and parish leaders are attending World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in just four months? They will be embarking on an exciting adventure; an adventure of travel, of prayer, of community, and a true experience of Universal Church!
The content on this page are designed primarily for the pilgrims, so they can begin to spiritually prepare themselves for this amazing experience. But it is also meant for those who are supporting our pilgrims, the parents, spouses, children, family, friends, and parishioners of the pilgrims should already be praying for them, asking the Holy Spirit to enter their hearts and make this time one of joy and excitement!
Each week there will be new content, either in the form of a link or a reflection on the World Youth Day experience. Any attendees of past World Youth Days are invited to email their own reflection on the experience to share with the pilgrims. Together, we can pray for a life-changing moment in the journey of these pilgrims, for we know their lives will never be the same!
Want more information on World Youth Day…what happens, why was it begun, etc…? Head over to the webpage of our United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and learn more about this amazing event!
