.- More than 600 young people participated last weekend in the 27th Catholic Students Congress (CONVIVIO), which has become a more and more important occasion for South American university students to reflect on their faith and become involved in Catholic social programs.

The Peruvian event’s theme was “And Who Do You Say That I Am?” and brought the students together to meditate on the need to live a coherently Christian life.

According to the organizers, the students “renewed their desire to more closely follow the Lord Jesus, and in a special way, to convey their experience of encounter to their contemporaries,” through dialogue, panel discussions, and diverse activities.

Students at CONVIVIO also had the opportunity for intense moments of prayer, especially in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament.

The event concluded with a Mass attended by the students and their families, and afterwards many students enrolled in different Catholic social projects and programs as a sign of their Christian commitment in daily life.

CONVIVIO will be held in Santiago de Guayaquil, Ecuador, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Santiago, Chile, in the coming weeks.
