WYD 2013 registrations to open in July

Registration for World Youth Day 2013 (WYD2013) will open in July said the organizers for the Rio event.

“Rio awaits you with open arms,” organizers said as they urge young people to come to Brazil, participate in the event and show the strength of young people around the world.

The only place to register for the 2013, July 23-28 summer event is online at the WYD2013 website.

Pope Benedict XVI is expected to attend.

“The registration page is the entryway into WYD Rio 2013. All pilgrims who come to the event must first register, and from there WYD welcomes them all,” said director of registration Sister Shaiane Machado.

She also said group registrations should be for a maximum of 50 young people. Groups larger than 50 should be divided up, Sr Machado added, noting that the process will be explained in detail on the section of the site created for group registrations.
