With the theme “Shalom: Friends of God, Friends of the Young and Friends of the Poor”, the Convention will take place in the main basilicas of Rome. They will be days of a vast program that includes catechesis, talks and moments of prayer to renew our offering of life for the love of God.
23/09 – Check-in and Pilgrim kits
San Lorenzo International Youth Center
Located a few steps from St. Peter’s Basilica, the “San Lorenzo” International Youth Center is the home of the youth in the heart of the Church. It is currently managed and animated by the members of the Shalom Community in Rome.
24/09 – Friends of God with Mary
Basilica of Saint Mary Major
We will meditate about “Mary all humble” an image given in the 2020 “Listening”magazine. We will also have a moment of catechesis inspired by the words of the Holy Father, Pope Francis, speaking about humility.
25/09 – Friends of the Poor
Basilica of Saint John Lateran
We will talk about our dearest friends: the poor. With their testimonies and some others of the shalom missionaries we will have a moment of reflection to praise God for their lives as part of the procession towards heaven.
26/09 – Private Audience with Pope Francis
Audience Hall Paul Vl (Vatican)
The most awaited moment with Pope Francis, a unique opportunity to listen to what the Holy Spirit says to our community and to each one of us through the mouth of the successor of Peter. Day also marked by the renewal of our life offering to God “at the feet of Peter”.
27/09 – Love for the young
The whole Community gathers to celebrate the great love for the Youth, the primacy of the Shalom Vocation. Moysés Azevedo, founder of the community, will talk about the complementarity of the older and younger generations, either in age or in the vocational path.
28/09 – Renewal of our missionary call
Basilica of St. Francis (Assisi)
In the city of Saint Francis, our humble young friend, we will conclude the Shalom Convention. Through the preaching of Moysés, a moment of Adoration to the Holy Sacrament and the Holy Mass with the whole community, we will be sent on mission again.
