On Sunday 28th November, 2010, Archbishop Paul Cremona will be reading out his annual Letter to Youth at the Oratorju Qalb ta’ Gesu in Mosta at 6:30 p.m. The day marks the start of the liturgical year; the first Sunday of Advent. The Archbishop’s message follows the current World Youth Day theme, a phrase offered for reflection by the Pope. The chosen theme is: “Planted and built up in Jesus Christ, firm in the Faith” (Col 2,7).

The Archbishop’s Letter to Youth accompanies young people in their search for growth and fulfilment. Through this letter, in previous years, Archbishop Paul Cremona addressed not only committed Christians, but the wider youth spectrum.

The message will be read out personally by Archbishop Cremona during an evening of prayers organised by Burmarrad Youth Group. The evening itself forms part of the World Youth Day Weekend organized by the parishes in the northern district and co-ordinated by the Church Youth Commission (KDZ). This coming year, World Youth Day will reach its climax during a series of celebrations in Spain, in August 2011. Hundreds of young people from Malta and Gozo are expected to participate.
