Reaching out to the Youth of the World at World Youth Day in Brazil


With a “shoutout” from Father Tom Rosica of Salt & Light Television

twitterHoly Cross Family Ministries collaborated with the USCCB (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops), Salt & Light Television, the Knights of Columbus, and others to manage an English-language venue for World Youth Day. Within the venue our mission staff once again hosted youth in our House of Mary Chapel where WYD pilgrims prayed the Luminous Mysteries through an experience with media.

In addition to our prayer chapel, there was time and space to visit with the youth, discuss their faith lives and encourage potential vocations.

Without a doubt, staff and pilgrims had an amazing experience of faith and many blessings resulted particularly from attending the closing Liturgy with our Holy Father, Pope Francis.
