WORLD YOUTH DAY IN PARISHES
In honor of young people and the distinctive gifts they share with our faith communities, out bishops declared that U.S. Catholic parishes and schools will observe World Youth Day annually on the 30th Sunday of Ordinary Time (October 27, 2013). This particular Sunday is intended to highlight the presence, energy, and diversity of youth and is an opportunity for the entire faith community to join in affirming the gifts of the young Catholic Church.
"Go and Make Disciples of All Nations"
This year marks the 28th celebration of World Youth Day in Parishes
In 1985, Blessed Pope John Paul II invited young people across the world to join him in Rome to observe the United Nations International Year of Youth. Since that momentous occasion, young people from every continent have gathered to celebrate the global church and their Catholic unity. The theme for World Youth Day 2013, as set by Pope Benedict XVI, comes from the great commission of the Gospel of Matthew (28:19), "Go and make disciples of all nations."
"Where does Jesus send us? There are no borders, no limits; he sends us to everyone. The Gospel is for everyone, not just for some. It is not only for those who seem closer to us, more receptive, more welcoming. It is for everyone. Do not be afraid to go and bring Christ into every area of your life, to the fringes of society, even to those who seem farthest away, most indifferent. The Lord seeks all; he wants everyone to feel the warmth of his mercy and love."
- Pope Francis, closing homily at World Youth Day 3013
