World Youth Day 2011

Madrid, Spain
“Rooted and Built Up in Jesus Christ, Firm in the Faith" (Col 2:7)

The Office for the New Evangelization of Youth and Young Adults (ONE) is excited to announce its plans for World Youth Day Madrid 2011.  This WYD we will be sponsoring two tracks: one for youth and one for young adults. 

World Youth Day (WYD) is the world’s largest gathering of young people, who gather from every continent to join our Holy Father for a week-long pilgrimage. This Catholic celebration of our faith includes Holy Mass, Confessions, Eucharistic Adoration, catechesis, many forms of prayer, dramas, concerts, praise and worship, all culminating with  an awe-inspiring overnight vigil and closing Mass with our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI.

We will be having general information meetings at the following times and locations:

November 16th, 1-3pm
Pastoral Center, 66 Brooks Dr. Braintree

November 16th, 7-9pm
Pastoral Center, 66 Brooks Dr. Braintree

November 19th, 7-9pm
St.  George Parish, 74 School St., Framingham

Who should attend these meetings?:  All Pastors, Priests, Youth Ministers, DRE’s, Youth Leaders and Young Adults are welcome to attend these information sessions.
