LEGAZPI City, Feb. 21, 2013— Hundreds of young faithful are expected to participate in the Diocese of Legazpi’s 4th Youth Way of the Cross on March 2, 2013.

With the theme “Via Crucis: Via Fidei (Way of the Cross: Way of Faith),” the activity seeks to assist the participants to observe more deeply the Lenten season through prayer and sacrifice.
The event is also being organized for the faithful to “grow in knowledge of Jesus and His saving mysteries and for young people to participate more actively in the life and mission of the Church…”
The Via Crucis will start at 1:00pm. Other activities include interactive catechetical tracks at 3pm, then a Taize Prayer at 5pm and a Mass and youth dialogue with Legazpi Bishop Joel Baylon at 5:30pm.
