“1250 young people passed through Maredsous: that’s big, that’s beautiful!”

 Msgr. Kockerols

The official launch weekend of World Youth Day
brought together 1250 young people in Maredsous
on 22 and 23 October 2022.

Some fifty ecclesial movements and communities
held a number of recreational and spiritual activities.
One after another, concerts by Christian groups were held on
on two stages built for the occasion.
A football tournament thrilled sports enthusiasts and fans alike.

Lorella and Anne co-hosted three workshops along
with several Jesuits and a Salesian sister
and also held a time of meditative prayer in the chapel.

This beautiful time of Christian fellowship was organised
by the French-speaking youth ministry team – well done!
