On the way to World Youth Day (WYD) in Rio de Janeiro 2013

12/04/2012: Brazil
IMYM | 17-21 July 2013

World Youth Day was initiated by Pope John Paul II in during the 1980’s to bring together young people from the whole world and to foster bonds of friendship among peoples of different cultures.  The programme includes the several opportunities to take part in Holy Mass, times of prayer, workshops, musical and dancing performances, and an all-night vigil attended by the Holy Father.

The first WYD took place in Rome in 1986. Ten other centres have hosted the event since then, with Rome having a second turn: Buenos Aires in Argentina (1987); Santiago de Compostela in Spain (1989); Czestochowa in Poland(1991); Denver in the USA (1993); Manila in the Philippines (1995); Paris in France (1997); Rome (2000), Toronto in Canada (2002); Cologne in Germany (2005); Sydney in Australia (2008); and Madrid in Spain (2011).

The next WYD takes place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 23 to 29  July 2013. In the preceding days (16 to21 July) there will take place the International Meeting of Marist Youth. On the 22 July, in particular, young people from the four Marist branches will have an international gathering. Both of these additional events will also take place in Rio de Janeiro.
