Hong Kong: Preparing for World Youth Day

Cardinal-elect Stephen Chow Sau-yan, S.J. has entrusted some 300 young Hong Kongers with a special “missionary mandate” as they prepare to attend World Youth Day.

The international gathering of young people from all parts of the globe kicks off on 1 August in Lisbon, Portugal, with Pope Francis arriving on 2 August, and runs until 6 August.

Young people from Hong Kong have been divided into 14 groups from various parishes, religious congregations, schools, and ecclesial communities.

Each group is led by an appointed young person, who will assist their group during WYD. The 14 group leaders received formation and attended 4 meetings, which included meditations on the Gospel, Eucharistic adoration, and moments of community prayer.
