Pray for your vocation with St. John Paul II and Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati. We’re sharing the legacy of these World Youth Day patrons with the next generation.
From dynamic talks to Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, this is a must-visit youth festival site of WYD23.
We hope you can join us!
Many young people struggle to find purpose and meaning.
Few recognize the power prayer has to connect us to God and help us discern His will.
We’re offering young people a unique opportunity to step into the quiet and pray.
“The search and discovery of God’s will for you is a deep and fascinating endeavor. Every vocation, every path to which Christ calls us, ultimately leads to fulfillment and happiness, because it leads to God, to sharing in God’s own life.”
