Memories of WYD2013 One Year On - "Lord I Need You"

Last edited 30th July 2014

Exactly one year ago, pilgrims were begging to depart from Rio de Janeiro at the close of an incredible World Youth Day week. Perhaps one of the most beautiful and moving moments of the whole week was American singer Matt Maher singing "Lord I Need You" as Pope Francis prayed on his knees before the Blessed Sacrament at Copacabana Beach. As we celebrate one year since WYD2013, re-live this incredible moment in this video!

One Year On: Rio Favela Continues to Reap Fruits from World Youth Day

Last edited 28th July 2014

One year has passed since Pope Francis' historic visit to the Babilônia favela in Rio de Janeiro - one of the poorest areas in the city. The success of WYD 2013 has brought a greater awareness of Pope Francis’ teachings to Babilônia and it's Catholic parish Our Lady of the Rosary, according to parish priest Father José Almy Gomes. As Catholic residents grow stronger in Catholic faith formation, he believes the Holy Father’s presence in Brazil and his Latin American roots provide for a closer connection with residents and parishioners.

A World Youth Day Testimony of Faith and Love

Last edited 13th May 2014

The greatest surprises in life always happen when you least expect them. Carolina did not expect that when her home city of Rio de Janeiro was chosen to host the next World Youth Day that she would fall in love with a British volunteer.
