Aparecida Do Norte, Brazil (Tuesday, 09-29-2015, Gaudium Press) Young Catholics in Brazil are getting ready for the celebrations in honor of the patroness of Brazil, Our Lady of Aparecida. In view of this great event, the National Shrine invites all young Catholics to participate in the Youth Vigil.
The activities will begin on October 10, at 11 pm, with a musical concert under the direction of Father Reginaldo Manzotti, in the “Patio de las Palmeras”. Then a procession with the Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Aparecida will go to the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament, where the vigil will start.
The vigil will take all night, including moments of reflection, prayer and young people will give their testimony of their encounter with the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The event is being organized by the missionaries of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer (the Redemptorists), in conjunction with the Youth Sector of the Archdiocese of Aparecida and the portal “Youth of Mary” of the National Shrine. (LMI)
