Pope Benedict

VATICAN CITY, 1 JUL 2008 (VIS) - Pope Benedict's general prayer intention for July is: "That there may be an increase in the number of those who, as volunteers, offer their services to the Christian community with generous and prompt availability".

His mission intention is: "That the World Youth Day held in Sydney, Australia, may awaken the fire of divine love in young people and make them sowers of hope for a new humanity". 

World Youth Day...a little closer to home

WYD 2008

World Youth Day in Sidney, Ohio

In response to the distant locale and the cost of attending World Youth Day 2008 in Sydney, Australia, Dioceses from Ohio, Michigan and surrounding states will hold a World Youth Day celebration a little bit closer to home.

Held in conjunction with World Youth Day Sydney, Australia, the separate celebration, held July 19 and 20 in Sidney, Ohio, will give youth who cannot make it to Australia the opportunity to connect with youth all over the world. Just under 200 students from the Diocese of Toledo will travel to Sidney, Ohio to celebrate World Youth Day.

The two-day event will feature speaker Mike Patin as well as a variety of musical guests.
