The 2008 World Youth Day Awaits You!
This is your opportunity to join Regnum Christi youth from all over the world for an unforgettable faith experience in the Land Down Under.

Pope Benedict XVI has invited the youth of the world to accompany him during the next World Youth Day in Sydney, Australia from July 14 – 21, 2008. The theme is “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be my witnesses” (Acts 1:8).

As a pilgrimage of faith and a celebration of solidarity between the Pope and the youth, the
World Youth Day
World Youth Day is an encounter with Christ himself, who seeks out the youth to tell them, “Come, follow me! I am the way, the truth, and the life.”

Over half a million youth will be there to respond to his invitation.
