Towards WYD

We are now in the final stages of the preparations for the Marist pre-World Youth Day gathering in Rio de Janeiro. A team of confreres from the District of Brazil is preparing it, working alongside members of the other branches of the Marist Family. The gathering starts on 17 July 2013 and finishes on 22 July with a Marist Festival. The young pilgrims will meet the four superiors general, and the following week they will be with Pope Francis. There will be young people from Europe, Canada, Brazil, USA, Mexico, Peru-Venezuela, Africa and Oceania. Details of the program, as well as information about the preliminary catechesis, news and information, can be found in the World Youth Day section of the site
