What is the MariaFest?

The MARIAN YOUTH FESTIVAL is a gathering of young people, from 15 to 30 years old, from all over the world who live Marian inspired spiritualities or are part of Marian groups, fraternities, movements and apostolates.

This meeting is prepared to live three dimensions: the personal dimension, the dimension with the neighbor and the dimension of personal encounter with Jesus Christ through Mary, in Mary and with Mary. Likewise, you must know that, by registering for this Meeting, you would automatically be registered at WYD as part of a Marian macro-group.

The festival is organized with great dedication, affection and prayer, so that young people prepare themselves to live the World Youth Day and previously have a space for personal encounter with Jesus and his Blessed Mother: a time to enter the heart and meet with God, experiencing the love and peace that comes from Him and what young people look for today.

You will find testimonies, catechesis, Holy Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, the Holy Rosary, the sacrament of confession, spiritual direction, songs, presentations, cultural activities and more…
