MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS FOR THE THIRTY-THIRD WORLD YOUTH DAY 2018

The World Day of Youth was instituted at the conclusion of the International Year of Youth and in conjunction with Saint John Paul II's World Youth Day gatherings; Palm Sunday has included this observance since 1985.

In preparation for the Synod on Youth, Faith Formation and Vocational Discernment, we have created a special prayer card to pray especially for youth of the Hamilton Diocese. Print them, share with a friend, and as always - please pray for all young people that they may grow in their faith and relationship with the Lord!
