United States Pilgrim Gathering
Wednesday, July 24, 2013
English-Language Site:
Special Welcome Center for English-Speaking Pilgrims
Location: Vivo Rio
Site to feature prayer experiences, music, videos, motivational speakers
The Welcome Center is located at Vivo Rio, a performing arts facility in the eastern Flamengo area of Rio, on the shores of Guanabara Bay, not far from other World Youth Day activities around the city. The facility is accessible by the city's metro system, making it convenient for World Youth Day pilgrims traveling in from around the area.
The Center will serve as a hub of activities during World Youth Day, which revolves around prayer and meetings with Pope Francis, catechetical sessions and liturgies with bishops from around the world.
The morning tour starts with a panoramic tour of downtown Rio where you'll pass by the infamous Sambadrome, the exhibition area for the renowned Samba schools in Rio.
A brief stop is made at the Metropolitan Cathedral, made famous for its unusual pyramid shape. Admire its beauty and rareness from the outside! Your panoramic city tour continues with a visit to the traditional Cinelandia Square where you'll tour the various historic buildings such as the Municipal Theater, the National Library and the National Museum of Fine Arts.
Head towards the Urca neighborhood, where one of Rio's most iconic symbols is located, Sugar Loaf Mountain. Traveling up Sugar Loaf mountain on a cable car, you'll make a brief stop at a vantage point at approximately 700 feet (215 meters) above sea level.
Capture unparalleled panoramic views of the city, Guanabara Bay, the Rio-Niteroi Bridge and Corcovado Mountain. You'll then ascend to the peak of Sugar Loaf for breathtaking views of Copacabana Beach, the Santa Cruz Fortress and the beaches of Niteroi.
After lunch (on our own), you'll pass through the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas district on your way to the Cosme Velho train station. Enjoy a scenic cog train ride through the Tijuca rainforest up to the 125 foot (38 meter) iconic Christ Redeemer Statue. You'll spend approximately 45 minutes at the statue where you can capture once in a lifetime photo opportunities.
After the train ride back down, you'll be dropped off at your accommodations. This evening we attend the opening ceremonies of World Youth Day 2013.
