The Vocational Fair will be the stage of real encounters with Christ. Here young people will have the opportunity of entering in “150 houses” of different movements, associations, communities, religious orders and social projects, whom we call Hosts, in order to get to know better the variety if charisms that make up the “beautiful garden of the Church”.
The main objective is that it be the stage for true encounters with Christ. With this in mind, the 8 spiritual pillars have been defined:
1. Christ as the centre
2. The encounter with God and with others
3. Saying "yes" to God
4. Mary's haste ("Mary arose and went with haste" - Lk 1:39)
6. The role of young people
8. The experience of joy
Location and timetable

The Testimonies are the opportunity for pilgrims to hear the conversion story of the Hosts of the Vocational Fair and the daily experience of their vocation, through a short personal testimony.
