The World Youth Meeting of the Catholic charismatic renewal is one of the activities promoted by ICCRS in preparation for the Golden Jubilee to be celebrated in the year 2017, but it also serves to introduce the youth of the renewal to the entire world.

The program is varied, including several meaningful activities for youth. The first activity programmed is a pilgrimage with a cross as a great public manifestation of faith. The program also offers pre-conference activities for the participants from abroad, who will be able to choose from four missionary activities.

On the following days, the program will include prayer and worship sessions, talks, formation activities and Masses during the day, whereas in the evenings there will be cultural and artistic presentations by the different countries participating in the Conference.

Providing an opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty of Foz do Iguacu, there will be a different activity on Saturday: the participants will go on a walk to the National Park of Iguacu. It will be a pilgrimage that includes spirituality, sharing of experiences and contact with nature.
