Cardinal Wilfrid Fox Napier an eThekwini living Legend of 2010, is heading the local organizing committee for WORLD Youth Day, an event for young people organized every few years by the global Catholic Church. This event is being held in Durban from the 6th to 10th of December at the Durban Exhibition Centre and surrounding areas.

The intention is for the five-day formal gathering to bring together young people between the ages of 18 and 35 years from South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland.

Young people from all walks of life, representing different cultures, different languages and different geographical locations will come together to deepen their faith and to be encouraged to become more active, thoughtful, engaging and caring global citizens. Over the five days, there will be community engagement; prayerful activities; discussion groups and pilgrimages.
