This effort was recognized by the Holy Father in holding the 2013 World Youth Day in Brazil in this Year of Faith. The campaign intends to inspire all to follow the example of the youth of Brazil, who continue to worship and celebrate despite numerous challenges. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops invites you to aid the unwaveringly faithful of the Catholic Church of Latin America. Please use your preprinted envelopes or mark your donation accordingly.
