Patron Saints for WYD2013 to be Announced on Pentecost Sunday - 27 May 2012

On Sunday 27 May, young people around the world will know the names of the official Patrons and Intercessors for World Youth Day 2013 in Rio de Janeiro.

The names of the WYD Patrons will be announced after the Pentecost feast day Mass, which will be celebrated by Archbishop Tempesta, President of the Local Organising Committee for World Youth Day 2013. The WYD office has revealed that the Saints chosen are varied - and will either relate to the story of the WYD2013 theme (Go and Make Disciples of All Nations), will be role models for youth, or will be important Patrons for the nation of Brazil.

Make sure you visit www.xt3.com/wyd after Pentecost Sunday - we will publish the names of the Patron Saints as soon as they are available. Visit this article from the World Youth Day official website to read more - the story is currently only published in Portuguese.
