Bishop Robert Brennan led a World Youth Day Holy Hour on Friday at St. Brigid Roman Catholic Church in Bushwick.
While celebrating Mass, he addressed the crowd of young people and parish leaders, who will be attending World Youth Day 2023 in Lisbon, Portugal.
During his homily, the bishop said the experience will lift them up to see the joy of friendship with Jesus Christ.
He added that he wants everyone to bring that joy back to New York.
Members of the Diocese of Brooklyn also celebrated Eucharistic Revival Youth Day on Saturday.
Mass was celebrated at St. Peter and Paul in Williamsburg before a procession with the Eucharist was taken through the streets, ending at Our Lady of Mount Carmel for the benediction.
