In preparation for World Youth Day activities in Denver Aug. 11-14, the Diocese of Salt Lake City will hold a World Youth Day Hub City Event on Tuesday, Aug. 10, beginning at 5:30 p.m. at the Utah State Fairpark. Approximately 3,000 delegates from California, Washington, Oregon and Canada - to be housed in Salt Lake City before making the final trip to Denver - will participate in the hub city event. Activities include a concert by the Merrills, a contemporary Christian music group, cultural and ethnic performances and prayer services.

The Catholic youth groups will then camp overnight in parish centers, Catholic schools, Valley Fair Mall and the Utah National Guard armory.
