World Youth Day
Every two years, pilgrims from around the world gather in one city to celebrate their faith in communion with each other and with the Church, including the participation of the Holy Father, His Holiness Benedict XVI. This year, World Youth Day will be celebrated in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from July 23-July 28.

The MAGIS Experience
Prior to World Youth Day, Jesuit institutions from across the globe will congregate in Salvador, Brazil for what is called "The MAGIS Experience," a ten day immersion experience. Some events include hiking through the mountains to experiences in spirituality at an Island retreat house. Some will be traveling to the Amazon, others working in Afro-Brazilian music schools. At environmentally conscious farm schools near Recife, students will have a wonderful and very rich experience of the Society in Latin America, particularly in the context of the many ways in which it relates to the materially poor. Add to that the planned participation of Fr. General Adolfo Nicolas, SJ in Salvador, and World Youth Day in Rio, and we know that our students will have a beautiful and life-changing experience.
