The highlight this year for Youth Ministry was definitely San Sperate, the wonderful town on Sardinia. Young people from as far as Belarus to Belfast and Perth to Calabria and some from even as far as the United States gathered for the 10th International Redemptorist Youth Congress.

 

The first one took place 25 years ago in

Pagani (Italy)

followed by

El Espino (Spain)

Eggenburg (Austria)

Durham (England)

Essen (Belgium)

Torun (Poland)

Bonn (Germany)

Limerick (Ireland)

Lviv (Ukraine)

and

San Sperate (Italy).
