Invitation to pray for the Youth Synod

MADRID, Spain.
At the Spanish National Meeting of Delegates and Youth Ministers, held in Valencia from September 27-30, it was suggested to pray in a special way for the Youth Synod, which takes place in Rome from October 3-28.

The leaders of Acit Joven (TA Youth), a movement of the Teresian Association in Spain, participated in the meeting. Those were days of much sharing, searching and building as Church using different charisms and perspectives. One of the Synod Fathers, Carlos Escribano, Bishop of Calahorra and La Calzada-Logroño and Head of the Department of Youth Ministry, participated in this gathering.

We are invited to pray for the Youth Synod - a sign of communion - so that the Holy Spirit enlightens the Bishops in their Synodal work. Different movements, associations, and dioceses commit themselves to pray at certain specific dates and times, as a chain of prayer.

Members of Acit Joven (TA Youth) in Spain have committed themselves to pray especially for the Synod on the following dates and invite everyone to join them:

  • October 3 at 4:00 PM
  • October 15 at 5:00 PM
  • October 27 at 6:00PM 

Members of ACIT Joven recommend:


"That in the different realities of the Teresian Association, with groups of young people, volunteers, young members of our families, alumni and students... we may unite in these moments of prayer that the Spanish Episcopal Conference has entrusted to Acit Joven (the schedules will undergo modifications depending on the different countries) or look for other moments to come together in prayer."

"We believe that this proposal is an opportunity to unite in prayer for the Synod and for young people, and also to find ourselves united as a Teresian Association. A big hug"
