.- University students from all over the world will have the opportunity to “bridge evangelism with intellectualism and religious values” at the Eighth International Youth Forum in Rome, March 31 to April 4. The theme of the forum, organized by the Pontifical Council for the Laity, is "Youth and University: Witnessing to Christ in the University World.”

Michael Galligan-Stierle, assistant secretary for Catholic Higher Education and Campus Ministry, says the forum will give young people the opportunity to bridge faith with the “barrage of ideas students encounter in the university setting,” reported the USCCB Web site.

Mary Ann Glendon, a Harvard University law professor who was recently appointed to the Vatican Academy of Social Science, will address the students. There will also be a number of assemblies and panel discussions on topics related to student life and experience.

The USCCB’s Department of Education has already selected a delegation of students from across the country. Events will include preparations for World Youth Day 2005 in Cologne, Germany next year.
