Three Students from College Pierre Toussaint in Sassier, Haiti will be attending World Youth Day this August in Madrid, Spain as a part of the delegation from the Archdiocese of New York. Scheduled for August 16 to 21, World Youth Day is a gathering of young Catholics from around the world for prayer, community-building, study and celebration. More than 300,000 young Catholics from 130 countries are expected at World Youth Day 2011.
The College Pierre Toussaint students will be Ambassadors representing their 280 fellow students and the entire Sassier community. The three student Ambassadors will be chosen in March from those 10th and 11th grade students who submitted essays about why they wanted to attend World Youth Day and how they would bring their experience back to the College Pierre Toussaint and the Sassier, Haiti community.
