"The future of the pro-family movement depends on how our youth embrace and approach the message of Life," stated Andy Blom, Communications Director for Human Life International, the world's largest pro-life, pro-faith, pro-family apostolate. "Reaching out across different cultures to spread the message of faith is essential if we are to spread the Gospel of Life in our society. It is for this reason that Human Life International is happy to offer help and hospitality to the pilgrims of the 2000 World Youth Day in Rome."  
Human Life International is proud to be one of the many groups working to help the young pilgrims of the Jubilee World Youth Day in Rome. HLI's Rome office, which works closely with the Holy See, is committed to helping young people plan for and participate in the Youth Day Celebration. Under the direction of Executive Director Fr. Ignacio Barreiro, HLI's Rome staff will be helping to
act as translators, tour guides, and teachers during the youth event. HLI's Rome office can be reached by telephone at (3906) 39-37-89-85 and by e-mail at  
The Jubilee World Youth Day, to be held in Rome from August 15th through August 20th, will feature a series of special events, focusing on the spiritual needs of today's young people. Included in the festivities will be an International Youth Forum, bringing together delegates from all over the world. Recently, it was announced that representatives from different continents would be invited by the Pope to stay at his summer residence, Castelgandolfo, during the event.

"This year's World Youth Day will show that the message of faith, life, and family transcends the boundaries of age and culture. Human Life International is honored to be able to help all learn more about this city and this celebration," continued Mr. Blom. "This year, the city of Rome has seen the shame of a festival that glorified immorality. Now the spirit of youth will transform and renew the city, showing the watching world that the spirit of Truth will prevail."
