World Youth Day
Join Cardinal Dolan and the Office of Youth Ministry as we journey to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to celebrate the 28th World Youth Day.
The XXVIII World Youth Day will be held from 23 to 28 July 2013 in the city of Rio de Janeiro and has as its motto "Go and make disciples of all nations" (Mt 28, 19).
The purpose of World Youth Day is threefold
1. Putting Trust in the Young
World Youth Day is a coming together of young adults from the four corners of the world and a strong reminder of the strength and confidence the young bring to the Church today.
2. Gathering Together
World Youth Day is not simply a gathering for the young people of the world, but a time to put trust in the world's youth. A calling for the world's youth to come together as one people.
3. Meeting the International World on a Human Level
It is still a marvel in this the 21st Century to exchange with others and to be a part of an international experience. International events are able to stir much hope but also many fears (increase in fundamentalism, nationalism and other new conflicts. . .) The Church and Christians themselves have a role to play in preventing the development of these fears, and in aiding each person in finding their way and discovering hope.
