World Day of Prayer for Youth, November 20, 2022
On November 20, 2022, the Church is called to celebrate the World Day of Youth. Instituted in 1985 at the conclusion of the International Year of Youth, and in conjunction with Saint John Paul II’s World Youth Day gatherings, this observance has previously taken place on Palm Sunday. In 2020, His Holiness, Pope Francis, transferred the date to the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe.
Purple Day Campaign
Every October, Children’s Aid Societies across Ontario raise awareness about the important role that individuals and communities play in supporting vulnerable children, youth, and families through the provincial Dress Purple Day campaign. The campaign is more important than ever, since the COVID-19 pandemic has created additional stressors for families, and in some cases has increased risk for the well-being and safety of children and youth.
