.- Organizers for World Youth Day Rio 2013 announced that registration for the event will begin on Tuesday, Aug. 28.
The Director of Registration, Sister Maria Shaiane Machado, explained that when they register, “pilgrim groups will be able to choose between one of the various travel packages being offered. In this way we will be able to meet the needs of young people. Registration will secure a pre-reservation, while payment for the package will ensure confirmation.”
Groups of up to 50 can register, and each group must be led by an adult, she added. Larger groups can be divided into smaller ones that can indicate when signing up that they are part of the main group.
The organizers also pointed young people to the official Pilgrim’s Guide, which was released on July 31, and contains basic information on registration and frequently asked questions.

The Archdiocese of Rio de Janeiro will hold a press conference on Aug. 29, led by Archbishop Orani Joao Tempesta of Rio and Sister Shaiane Machado.
Those who wish to register for World Youth Day must do so online at www.rio2013.com.

The Pilgrim’s Guide can be found at: http://www.rio2013.com/en/frequently-asked-questions/registration.
