World Youth Day Preparation Continues with AMRI


Pilgrims travelling to World Youth Day continue to gather to pray and prepare for their pilgrimage which will take place 31July – 7 August. Almost 40 young religious, young adults and leaders will travel with AMRI to World Youth Day. AMRI is also assisting another 150 pilgrims who are travelling with various Congregations. All the congregations and AMRI are sharing some of the preparations and detailed planning in such a pilgrimage.

On Wednesday 17th May, many took part in an evening prayer led by the student Carmelites in Gort Muire, who are travelling to WYD. Fr Michael Troy  O.Carm led a Catechesis on Mary. He focussed on three words – Presence, Action and Word.

Over the coming weeks the groups will attend preparation gatherings with various congregations around Dublin.
