The World Youth Day takes place firstly, inside the heart of each one, in the desire of being part and being present in this awaited meeting. Tell us your story and show to the world what you are felling and doing for the WYD. The youth is the focus of this huge faith encounter.
“We are focused in works for the World Youth Day, raising money through raffles, sells, kiosks at fests of the patron saints. All this, to help affording the trip of those who don’t have the financial conditions to go to Rio de Janeiro. We are anxious about the WYD, we want to go and stock up of that spirituality and bring it to everybody”, wrote Diego Silva Viana, of Pedro Leopoldo, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais.
