The “Together” event has also drawn the interest of many WCC member churches that are hosting local events in conjunction with the festivities in Rome.
Young people—whether traveling to Rome or staying home—are being encouraged by churches, ecclesial federations, communities, movements, and youth ministry services to participate in whatever way they can.
In addition to the many partners, the event is being organized by the Taizé community in close collaboration with the Secretariat of the Synod in Rome; Dicastery for the Promotion of Christian Unity; Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life; and the Vicariate of Rome.
Young adults from 18 to 35 are invited to Rome, to be hosted by parishes and Christian communities of the city. Different “pathways” will feature meetings in different parts of Rome, as well as workshops and roundtables on different themes.
A ecumenical prayer vigil on 30 September is open to everyone and will take place in St Peter’s Square. Pope Francis and representatives of different churches will participate.
