.- A delegation from the Vatican arrived in Rio de Janeiro Oct. 24 to visit the sites where World Youth Day 2013 will take place and decide on whether to approve them.
 
World Youth Day 2013 will take place in July of 2013 and will be attended by Pope Benedict XVI.  The Holy Father was the first to register for the event through the website www.rio2013.com.
 
According to the Archdiocese of Rio de Janeiro, the coordinator of the papal trips, Alberto Gasbarri, will be the one to evaluate the proposed sites for the closing World Youth Day Mass, which was originally going to take place at the Santa Cruz Air Base. 

The site could be changed “for the good of the event and of the pilgrims,” the archdiocese said.
 
The Apostolic Nuncio to Brazil, Archbishop Giovanni d’Aniello, will join the delegation on its tour of the venues.
