The Passionist Charism WYD 2013 Correspondent [Fr. Denis Travers, C.P.] writes –
Today we had the Passionist Youth Day for the younger members of the Passionist Family. Some 300 or more young people assembled in our parish in Rio de Janeiro for a day of formation and celebration. The day was also attended by young Passionist Religious who joined with the youth for the animation exercises and the liturgies and meals.
The welcome and hospitality of our parishioners was wonderful and the day was a great success. Fr. John Pearce, C.P., Parish Priest of Marrickville [Sydney, Australia] was able to join us for the afternoon and the concluding Mass.
Thanks to Fr. Denis who sent the following photos of the Passionist Youth Gathering –
