The day will culminate with a Praise and Worship procession to Our Lady of Fatima Church for the celebration of the Eucharist at 3:45pm.  Mr. Kareem Bertrand, a young adult from the community of Newtown will be the guest speaker during the rally activities.

During the parish outreach, youth groups will be visiting the sick and homebound and conducting community service projects in Giraudel, Eggleston, Bellevue, Newtown, Loubiere/Madrelle and Wallhouse/Castle Comfort.

Hundreds of young persons from every parish community of Dominica are expected to participate in the rally.  Other highlights of the day include: performances, a Stewardship Photo Scavenger Hunt and dramatization of the Palm Sunday Passion Reading.  All youth and interested adults are invited to join in this chorus of prayer through a day of fellowship, witness, hope and joy in the Lord.

    “Our lady of fatima” alas, when will black people understand that this is idol worship, the church is not towards god but towards this false image.

    In 1984 at the close of the Holy Year of Redemption, over 300,000 young people from around the world responded to the invitation of His Holiness John Paul II for an International Jubilee of youth on Palm Sunday in St. Peter’s square. Looking out to the crowds who answered his invitation he said, “What a fantastic spectacle is presented on this stage by your gathering here today! Who claimed that today’s youth has lost their sense of values? Is it really true that they cannot be counted on?” It was at this gathering that the Holy Father entrusted to the youth what is now known as the World Youth Day Cross, to be carried throughout the world as a symbol of the love of Christ for humanity.
    First WYD:
    The following Palm Sunday, coinciding with the United Nation’s International Year of the Youth, Our Holy Father took the opportunity to welcome the youth of the world to Rome again. Later, announcing the institution of World Youth Day on December 20, 1985.
