Je vous souhaite un riche temps spirituel dans cette partie de l’Espagne, patrie de saint Ignace de Loyola, et sanctifiée par de nombreux autres saints. Puissent leur exemple et leur intercession fortifier les jeunes de Juventutem dans leur amour du Christ et faire d’eux des témoins joyeux et entraînants de la sainteté de l’Eglise.

Annual international gathering: 10-12 September 2010, England
Vigil of Pentecost, 22 May 2010
 
Dear Juventutem Friends,
Cordial greetings to all of you worldwide!
 
4th Anniversary:
In two days, on May 24th, I invite you to pray for our Federation International Juventutem which will be… four years old. It is normally the Feast of Our Lady Help of Christians. But this year the Monday after Pentecost will take precedence. For that reason, I have offered yesterday a Votive Mass of Our Lady Help of Christians at all your and our intentions as members or supporters of Juventutem.
 
Pilgrimage:
Just I write to you and all along this week-end of Pentecost, some Juventutem members from France, Italy and other countries are walking from Paris to Chartres in France as part of the famous Pilgrimage of Christendom – the largest Extraordinary Form event in the world every year with 8,000 persons walking 70 miles in 2 ½ days. Let us pray for them, and we can be sure they pray for us also.
 
Deceased supporters:
I am sorry to announce to you the death in Bern, Switzerland, of two benefactors of our Federation.
Mrs Marie Vogel tragically died on 3 January 2010 after a fire in her building. Also in Bern, Mr Heinz Müller died of cancer in hospital on 19 April 2010. Those who attended our International Gathering in Bern last year and in 2008 will have met him then. Please remember them in your prayers. Requiescant in pace.
 
New contacts:
Request for founding groups in Canada and the U.S.A. were sent to us. It is good to see interest various places in North America. We are sorry for the delays in dealing with the request. We hope to have more regular contacts in the future.
 
Annual international meeting: 10-12 September 2010, England
Our annual meeting 2010 will not take place in Bern, Switzerland but in Douai Abbey, England. Like in 2009 and 2008, we hope that as many representatives as possible will be able to come. Douai Abbey is located 30mn from Reading, the base of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter in England. It is also 1h south of Oxford and two hours west from London. A good location to visit places of interest in England, starting with places associated with our Catholic faith, such as the martyrs of Oxford, the place of the gallows Tyburn in London or the monument to Saint Thomas More. Also, the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI will be in England a couple of days after our week-end (16-19 September 2010). If you come from a distance, why not plan to stay longer and attend at least the Prayer Vigil in Hyde Park, London on Saturday 18th September 2010? Accommodation could possibly be worked out for you.
 Juventutem Ecclesiastical Assistant Fr de Malleray, FSSP, Juventutem Treasurer Cosimo Marti and other representatives have already said they would be present. Our English Juventutem group (i.e. Young Catholic Adults) have kindly agreed to coordinate the event. The weekend will be full-board. Places are limited so please book early.

Juventutem Christchurch
Who is Juventutem Christchurch?
Juventutem Christchurch was formed in early AD2008 with the support of Bishop Barry Jones and under the guidance of Bishop Emeritus Basil Meeking (ecclesiastical patron of Juventutem Australia). The name is taken from Psalm 42 which opens the traditional Mass: “I will go to the altar of God, to God the joy of my youth (juventutem)” Juventutem Christchurch has come about as fruit of the World Youth Days in Cologne 2005 and in Sydney 2008.
Our Aims
We wish to promote and deepen knowledge of the traditional liturgy of the Catholic Church. We are interested in engaging, (even for the first time), Catholics and other Christians who want to know more about the Church’s liturgical heritage. Our motivation comes form Pope Benedict’s liberalisation of the traditional Mass with his Motu Proprio, “Summon Pontificum”. The Christchurch Diocese has taken up Pope Benedict’s invitation and daily Mass is offered in the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament, Barbadoes Street, Christchurch. A Saturday Vigil and Sunday Mass are offered.
Juventutem Christchurch provides catechesis, lectures and practical workshops in aspects of the extraordinary form of the Mass.  It is hoped such catechesis will assist those wishing to access Mass in the extraordinary form.
Who is Bishop Emeritus Basil Meeking?
