As part of the World Youth Day Festival in Lisbon, there will be a unique meeting prepared by Evangelicals and Catholics (CHARIS) together. It will be a meeting of youth and leaders from different christian churches to pray together, worship God and encourage one another for evangelization.

It will be the first such event in the history of World Youth Day. We will hear a special message recorded by Pope Francis and Cardinal Cantalamessa. We will have a very distinguished guests like Nicky Gumbel, pioneer of Alpha. and Jonathan Roumie, playing the role of Jesus in The Chosen.

We will be led in worship by an ensemble of many well-known artists, including Taya Smith of Hillsong, Matt MaherIsraelAna Paula Valadão and others. They will sing some of the best-known songs, such as OceansYeshuaWhat a Beautiful Name.

We are in for a wonderful, joyful worship, praying together and feasting on the preached Word in unity, joy and power of the Holy Spirit.
