The Holy Father invites the entire world to be united in celebrating and praying with and for the youth every year on Palm Sunday. In Montreal, this Mass will be celebrated by Most Rev. Christian Lépine, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Montreal, with young people via Skype on on Youtube LIve Saturday April 4th, 2020 at 5 P.M.
Everything is possible with the Holy Spirit. Though we cannot gather in person, World Youth Day, celebrated on Palm Sunday, remains the day of celebration and prayer with and for young people! More than ever our World is in need of great hope! Celebrating together despite the doors of the churches being closed is a powerful testament to young people’s faith, protagonism and their creative response to this year’s theme “Young man, I say to you, arise (Lk 7: 14)”.
Let us show the world that God loves us that Christ is alive and wants us ALIVE! LET’S VIVA TOGETHER!
