Join thousands of young adults from around the globe at Magis & World Youth Day in Brazil in July 2013!
The dates of Magis will be July 12-22 and begin in Salvador da Bahia, a beautiful old colonial town on Brazil’s northeastern coast. Then, on to World Youth Day in famous Rio de Janeiro from July 23-28.
Magis is a pastoral experience of Ignatian programs and events in the days leading up to World Youth Day for pilgrims from Jesuit institutions. The 2013 Magis theme is “The Nations Await Us”. The Magis initiative gets its name from the Jesuit phrase magis meaning “the more”. St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, encouraged those who follow Christ to examine their ability to do more for him and, in turn, for others. Your opportunity to “live for more” awaits you!
World Youth Day is a week-long pilgrimage with opportunities for sharing and worship with young adults from around the world. It is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate faith. The week features catechetical sessions, masses, speakers, live music, drama, and other arts. During the final weekend, pilgrims set out from their various host sites to journey to the location of the final outdoor candlelit prayer vigil and Sunday Mass with the pope.
