    hey guys i would like to make a suggestion, i use to live in the USA and i had some wonderful people that guided me with my spiritual life and made me a better person, now i am living in mexico, city and i notice that evendough it has a lot of people with faith the youth do not know the meaning of what it is to be dedicated and be able to share their experience with people their age, if anyone knows how to get in contact with the diocese of mexico, let them know that World Youth Day is best way to get this experience, let them know to stop judging this teens just by the way they look, i mean God Loves Us just the way we are, and the Priest here dont seem to get that

    Hi Stephanie,
    WYD Rio just announced this week that registration will begin in July 2012, on line through their website. Registration always includes lodging, meals, and sometimes transportation. Keep checking the Rio2013 official website to see when the registration system opens. We’ll also post news on WYDCentral.

  18. Alicia Ambrosio says:

    Please be aware that registration for WYD Rio has not opened yet and registration fees have not been made public yet. Travel agencies often try to profit off WYD participants by offering “official packages”. Registration fees depend on which country you come from. Registration for WYD is always done through the official WYD website and includes accommodation, meals, and sometimes transit passes as well the option to participate in Days in the Dioceses, which will be called “mission week” in Rio.

    will there be a music contest for Rio too?
