PREPARATIONS UNDERWAY FOR WORLD YOUTH DAY
Meeting in Rome with Delegates from All over the World
    ROME, JAN 14 (ZENIT).- Although it is still seven months away, preparations for World Youth Day are well underway. Delegates from around the world have gathered in Rome to plan the August event.

    According to Bishop Renato Boccardo, director of the Youth Office of the Pontifical Council for the Laity, "the meeting is especially intended to inform those responsible for Youth Pastoral Care, and the movements and associations about the state of preparation for the World Day."

    There are 300 participants who are both expressing their concerns and expectations as well as offering their suggestions. "This is a meeting to exchange experiences and to study the best way to refine the fundamental aspects of the Day," stressed Bishop Boccardo.

    "The World Day exacts great technical and organizational effort: suffice it to think of hospitality, transport, food, accommodation... But it requires even greater interior effort so that this important event may be a time of grace for each youth, a spiritual experience of encounter with Christ." ZE00011406
