Registration for Rio 2013

April 25, 2012
With more than a year to go before World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro we’re starting to see logistical information being rolled out. Specifically registration information.
The Rio organization advised would be pilgrims that registration will open in July 2012. Groups of up to 50 people can register through the on-line registration portal that is expected to be up and running in a couple of months. Groups with more than 50 people will have to split themselves into groups of 50 for registration purposes.
As always, your registration with WYD includes accommodation and meals. WYD host cities always provide two different types of accommodation options: host families, and group housing venues. Group accommodation venues are usually parishes or schools that convert their public spaces into dormitory style accommodation.
The WYD Rio Accommodation Department has already launched a campaign to get host families on board. Host families offer pilgrims a safe haven, a family home in which to spend the week of WYD and a chance to get to know the local culture and the local church…and learn some Brazilian Portuguese.
If you can already read Brazilian Portuguese, visit the WYD Rio website for more information on registration and housing.
