Dominica to be represented at World Youth Day 2103

images (1)The 14th international World Youth Day; an international Catholic event focused on religious faith and youth will commence soon.

The host city of World Youth Day 2013 will be Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, as announced by former Pope Benedict the sixteenth (XVI,) at the end of the closing mass of World Youth Day 2011 in Madrid, Spain.

The events are scheduled to be held from 23 July to 28 July 2013; Father Herman Sharplis gives more details.

The youth will be sharing as well as demonstrating their faith, and ensuring that as Catholics they proclaim to the world that Jesus Christ is indeed Lord.

0Due to the high cost of the venture only a few delegates will represent Dominica in Brazil.

Subsequent to the meeting, the major event will occur in Rio, where the mass and opening ceremony will take place.

The event will close with a mass by Pope Francis.
