Whilst World Youth Day (WYD) is a worldwide encounter with the Pope celebrated every three years, RISE is a series of events organised by MCYN leading up to WYD. The name is inspired by the theme of this year’s WYD – Mary Arose and Went with Haste (Lk1:39). WYD is an event to be celebrated by every single youth within the Church, even those who for one reason or another won’t make it to Portugal. In view of this, we are encouraging all youth in our diocese to join us for RISE’s monthly events with the aim of getting together and growing deeper in faith through prayer and spiritual formation.
Our next meeting is going to be a held at the Luqa Youth Centre on Friday, the 21st of April at 7:30pm. A reflection on Jesus’s encounter with Bartimaeus will be shared by Caroline Pullicino. We look forward to seeing you all!
