International Assembly of YouFra

The third International Assembly of YouFra was held in Mexico City. The youth event was held August 20-26, 2022 at the Verbum Dei Religious Retreat House. Accompanying the Assembly were the OSF General Minister Tibor Kauser, Silvia Diana, Felix Chocojay and General Assistants to the OSF: Br. Tomas Ginga, OFMCap and Br. Carlos Gines, TOR, as well as National Spiritual Assistants from Croatia, Mexico, Argentina and Bolivia.

The Assembly had as its theme: Sanctify Yourselves and You Will Sanctify the World. The young men and women reflected on holiness in light of Pope Francis' exhortation Gaudete et Exultate. In addition, they reflected on their own affiliation and shared about the social endeavors that every YouFra Fraternity around the world initiates and strives to achieve.The Assembly also included times of prayer, celebration, reflection, pilgrimage, dance and sharing of the cultural and spiritual riches of each country. A special highlight was the pilgrimage to the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe and the assessment of priorities for the coming years.
