Theme: Go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19)


If you are counting down to Rio WYD 2013 – You can keep updated with the information through our newsletter & your local Parish Youth Rep. If you are interested in travelling to Rio for WYD13 what should you be doing???

  1. Start saving your money or fundraising – the estimated cost of a 2 week trip for WYD is $5,000 based on a group size of 40 people & includes post travel option. If you are intending to go, I would aim to save atleast $5,500 & you would have to have the money saved in the next 18 months. This means save (or raise) approx $300 month for the next 18 months. If you leave your saving plan for any longer, you’ll have to save $400-$500 per month to reach your goal!
  2. Come along to the Sunday Sesh’s & start learning some Portuguese.
  3. Send us an email to let us know you’re interested in coming to Rio. Email: with the Subject title ‘Rio WYD’. Let us know your basic contact details & we’ll keep you updated on the Rio info.
  4. Closer to the date, monthly WYD preparation meetings will be held for all pilgrims to attend.
