International Youth Camp IYC 2022

Informacija lietuviškai čia !

The Fraternity of Tiberiade in Lithuania is organising an international camp this summer. This is already the third edition of this international camp and we are happy to repeat this experience in Lithuania in 2022 !

The IYC2022 brings together young people from more than 15 countries and nationalities for one week. It is a unique opportunity to experience a time of deepening faith with other Christians from different backgrounds and cultures. 

During a week, almost 300 young people

  • experience brotherhood,
  • deepen faith through conferences,
  • participate in workshops on various themes,
  • listen to testimonies,
  • pray together
  • search for beauty through artistic creations
  • camping under tent (bring your own tent!:))

Halfway through the camp, we will live an experience in small groups in order to discover each other better and meet the country that welcomes us: this is what we call “Gospel Trek”.

More than 20 Gospel Trek options are being prepared, from a Franciscan providence experience, a pilgrimage, a cultural visit, a time of silence in a hermitage, manual work, and much more.

About IYC 2022 theme: "I am looking for my brothers".

"I am looking for my brothers" is a quote from the book of Genesis, taken from the story of Joseph and his brothers. This is the great story of wounded brotherhood that seeks to build itself. Joseph's family is the image of our humanity: Joseph is the second to last of a sibling group of 12, where there is no shortage of rivalry and competition.

The tragic fate of Joseph, whom his brothers first wanted to kill but who was eventually sold into slavery, tells us the great complexity of human brotherhood. The Bible tells us that brotherhood that God desires is in reality a quest and a task, and that it is constantly put to the test.

This biblical story will tell of the amazing adventure of brotherhood that passes through betrayal, slavery, settlement in a foreign land, far from the brothers, then return and reconciliation.

In the Document on “Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together”, which Pope Francis signed in Abu Dhabi on 4 February 2019 with the Grand Imam of Cairo Ahmad Al-Tayyeb, the Pope recalls that God "created all human beings equal in rights, duties and dignity, and called them to live together as brothers and sisters.”

 

As in the biblical story of Joseph, Pope Francis gives us the mission to create brotherhood among ourselves, and this is the project we have during this international camp! We will explore the theme of fraternity from different perspectives through lectures, workshops and especially through living together with people from different nations, cultures and peoples. So if you want to discover and build this fraternity yourself, don't hesitate to join us!
