Interreligious Youth Meeting in Assisi

Assisi, the famed home of Saints Francis and Clare, played host to an International Interreligious Youth Meeting in Assisi from Nov. 4 to 8. The meeting, which commemorated the 20th anniversary for the Day of Prayer for Peace, was arranged by the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue with the Council for Promoting Christian Unity.

"The goal of the meeting was to pass on to the young generation the "spirit of Assisi" which the Servant of God Pope John Paul II, launched on Oct. 27. The PCID invited about 100 youth from different religious traditions throughout the world; nearly 50 young people represented the Christians and the rest came from other religious traditions."
