The Anglican World Youth Encounter is a 10-day event taking place in Brazil alongside the Roman Catholic Church's World Youth Day.
Nina Boe, secretary general of the Igreja Episcopal Anglicana do Brasil, provides this update from Rio de Janeiro: "Sometimes in life, one will have those experiences with people that lovely that it has the feeling that they have already passed a long time with them – and it’s just been one day. There is already this feeling in Rio de Janeiro at the World Anglican Youth Encounter. Happening at the same time as the World Youth Day (a majority of the participants are Catholic), priests Nicholas Wheeler & Daniel Cabral, with the support of diocesan bishop Filadelfo Oliveira, had the idea to have an encounter of Anglican youth in the diocese of Rio de Janeiro. With invites sent to dioceses in Brazil, Europe, Africa and Australia, there is now a small group ready for ten unforgettable days."
