INTERNATIONAL YOUTH FORUM 2018

The Forum is one of the biggest Catholic events of the summer.

It's five days with 3000 young people from 18 to 30 years old, to focus on The Essential, to receive formation and meet young people in Paray-le-Monial. This 2018 edition takes place from August 14 to 19, it is international and will be memorable;)

Why come to the Youth Forum?

Because you did not have time to put God in your daily life this year.
Because you need this time to re-boost your faith.
Because you want to meet people (someone in particular ...?).
Because you feel the need to receive formation.
Because you are asking yourself important questions.
Because you need to be free.
Because you like the Lion King.
And maybe because the Lord is calling you?

"Today, dear brothers and sisters, we proclaim this unique victory by which Jesus became King and Lord of the ages: by the sole power of love which is God’s nature, his very life, and which will never end (1Co 13,8).
With joy we share the beauty of having Jesus as our King: his Kingship of love turns sin into grace, death into resurrection, fear into trust "

POPE FRANCIS
