Youth Summit - Ottawa 2010

Youth Summit - Ottawa 2010

"The Church asks you to go, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to those who are near and those who are far away. Share with them the freedom you have found in Christ. People thirst for genuine inner freedom. They yearn for the Life which Christ came to give in abundance."(Homily at World Youth Day. Denver 1993, Pope John Paul II)

Who: For all youth/young adults graduating from grade 12 up to 35 years old.

What: Montee Jeunesse is a bilingual gathering of youth/young adults from across Canada that focuses upon the Eucharist and on living as a Missionary.

When: May 21st – May 24th, 2010 (Victoria Weekend)

Where: At various locations and parishes across Ottawa.

Why a Youth Summit in 2010? At its outset, the Youth Summit of 2005 aimed to bring young adults together for a time of renewal in preparation for the 2008 International Eucharistic Congress. Happy to be together and witness to their faith, those young people wanted the Youth Summit to be continued. Their wish was fulfilled.

Theme: In continuation of the 2009 mission-themed Youth Summit, the 2010 edition will continue exploring the vital relationship between the Eucharist and mission. This year's theme: Sent! will bring us to reflect upon our own personal role as missionaries in today's Church, particularly amidst other young adults.

Location: For the first time ever, the Youth Summit will be crossing the bridge from Quebec to Ontario, to Canada's capital city, Ottawa, by the invitation of Archbishop Prendergast. What better place to be "Sent" to, to be testimonies of our faith to the nation!
