WANTED: Joyful, energetic WYD pilgrims

September 30, 2011
After the WYD “high,” how do you continue to nourish the seeds of faith that were planted? That’s the question Pedro asks this week on Perspectives: The Weekly Edition. Joining him for the discussion is Neiman D’Souza, a seminarian for the Archdiocese of Toronto, and Jonathan Nix, coordinator of Youth Ministry at St. Bonaventure parish in Toronto. A lot of spiritual preparation happens before World Youth Day, but what happens once we get home and settle back into our old routines? What are the challenges? What are the opportunities? But, most importantly how do we stay rooted in Christ?
