There is an eternal quest for truth in life and faith is an inseparable aspect of it. Catholic pilgrimages serve a means for deepening faith in God and you can deal a more spiritual and moral life. Now, you can witness a grand event of World Youth Day 2011 which will deepen your Catholic faith. Madrid, Spain will host this event from August 15-21, 2011. For Catholics, it will be one of the world’s most exciting events and, more remarkably, it is going to be held in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. So, it will be such a life changing grand event that all young people of the Catholic faith would certainly like to attend at any cost!

World Youth Day 2011 is a Catholic event which is expected to be held in Madrid, Spain over 7 days from August 15 – 21 2011 focused in the youths. This event will cost something around €50 million, half paid through taxes and half by some private entities. For this 2011 event, Spanish bishops are urging the Pope to name a patron saint and they have recommended Blessed Mary Raphael Baron, who was canonized in late 2009 by Benedict.

If you wish to attend this beautiful and memorable event, you can contact and join a Catholic travel leader like Unitours. Unitours are one of the leading Catholic tour operators at the past 6 World Youth Days in various countries and cities like Rome, Manila, Paris, Toronto, Cologne, and Sydney. They have more than 50 years experience of arranging and handling Catholic pilgrimages. If you choose Unitours as your customized group travel dealer, they will handle all the temporal details of your World Youth Day experience in order that you can easily focus on the spiritual needs of your pilgrims.

Due to their past World Youth Day experiences, Unitours know well that group leaders often wish to have flexibility in making their own World Youth Day plans. And that is why; you will have a flexibility to make your own programs. In other words, they will allow you to make your own program according to where you would like to go and how much you are supposed to include.

Once should not miss a great opportunity to see World Youth Day 2011. How beautiful thing it will be when so many young people can get together to praise God and they can be proud of their faith!

World Youth day 2011 ? A Grand Catholic Event!

Pilgrimages are essential in the lives of the most Christians. Catholic pilgrimages are arranged for people who wish to embark on a spiritual journey with an intention to unite with God. Visit the holy places and shrines around the globe and deepen your Catholic faith. World Youth Day 2011 is such a Catholic event which will glimpse you about Catholic faith that you should not miss to attend!

 

World Youth Day 2011 is an international event organized by the Catholic Church, uniting young people from all over the globe. People with Catholic faith as well as the people with other denominations of faith can attend this grand event.

 

The celebration of the World Youth Day 2011 will be held in Madrid, Spain’s capital. The event will start from the 16th to the 21st of August, 2011. The theme chosen for this event is from St. Paul: “Rooted and built up in Christ; strengthened in the faith.” From this theme, you can figure out that how crucial it will be to attend this Catholic event!

 

World Youth Day 2011 event will be of great attraction. For this event, Spanish bishops have been requesting a Pope to name an enthusiast saint like Blessed Mary Raphael Baron, who was canonized in late 2009 by Benedict. The whole event will have its own grandeur and beauty. If you wish to be a part of this event, you should think of a fine pilgrimage travel agency like Unitours.

 

Unitours have been a leading Catholic Pilgrimages operator for the past six World Youth Days in different countries and cities like Rome, Manila, Paris, Toronto, Cologne, and Sydney. In other words, they have more than fifty years experience of arranging Catholic pilgrimages. If you choose Unitours as your customized organization transport dealer, they will make your traveling schedule for this event convenient, safe and affordable.

 

Since Unitours have good experiences of the past six WYD, you can consider them for this memorable event World Youth day 2011. So, they know better which organization leaders wish to have coherence for the plans for such world event. Moreover, they will also offer you flexibility regarding planning out your program as to how much you want to include in your tour.

Visit the website unitours.com to plan out your program according to your convenience, and attend this wonderful World Youth Day 2011 event as a general Catholic Pilgrimages which is going to be held in Madrid, Spain from Aug 15-21, 2011.

What Was the Wackiest Event of 2008?

It’s that time of the year that everyone dreads most. I don’t know what’s worse, having to spend time with your family or these year-end retrospectives. However, you need to brave through both annual traumas. Without further ado, here’s a list of the weirdest moments of 2008. Select one, or offer another zany story I might have overlooked (I tend to repress such memories). And away we go:

1) The Katie Couric Debacle. This is the way McCain’s career ends. This is the way McCain’s career ends. This is the way McCain’s career ends. And so it was, not with a bang but a “I can see Russia from my house”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nokTjEdaUGg

2) Hillary Rambo Clinton. We can never accuse Republicans of being the sole occupants of those castles built in the sky. Clinton blatantly lies and doesn’t think people will be smart enough to pick it up. Come to think of it, is she the gal we need serving as America’s chief diplomat? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozQe72pJOdQ

3) Jesse Jackson wants to cut off Barack Obama’s nuts! In the most bizarre interpretation of family planning yet, Jesse Jackson relates his desire to separate then presidential hopeful Barack Obama from his testicles. If he would have grown up watching Bob Barker on the ‘Price is Right’, then he would have known that that particular option is to be considered solely for cats! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cML1ZVmRN9A

4) Eliot Spitzer Swallows! John Edwards would have made the list had his political career been alive for it to have been killed by a sex scandal. Instead, we get Spizty’s tryst with a 22-year-old whose years of drug abuse have rendered her fugly. So fugly indeed, that the now ex-Governor’s menopausal wife Silda was actually way hotter by comparison! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQ03HnrFHVE

5) The Economy Rollercoaster! Between market performance rivaling the Depression for greatest downward slope and the GOP’s historic bungling of the situation, this year was one wild ride for the American economy. Just ask Ed McMahon whose $10,000,000 check bounced forcing him to panhandle on Larry King’s gabfest. It seems Johnny forgot to mention him in his will and Dick Clarke just won’t die! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ng1yXgyY8Uo

6) The Immoral Majority breaks its silence. Steve “Little Rove” Schmidt was John McCain’s senior campaign strategist. As lead strategist for the Bush campaigns, he was Karl Rove’s protege. For McCain, he brought race baiting, class warfare, moralizing and mud slinging to new lows that saw even Papa Rove calling for the GOP to tone things down. However, the alarm bells went off for everyone but chief moralizer and convicted drug felon Rush Limbaugh and his clones when Schmidtee gave a speech to a gay lobby group calling for full acceptance of their lifestyle, relating how he -like all GOP weasels of distinction- has a gay sister. Other famous Republican’ts with pink relatives include Newt Gingrich, Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, Alan Keyes, Larry Craig’s wife… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOPXOmBO0gM

7) The New England Patriots go 18-1. After having the first perfect regular season in the history of the NFL’s 16-game schedule, the Pats breezed through the playoffs but couldn’t seal the deal against a New York Giants team that went 10-6 in the regular season. Aging ’72 Dolphins rejoice! You still have that one thing to make a toast to in your otherwise pathetic, bankrupt lives. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSUJQmIeVBo

8) Rosie O’Donnell’s prime-time program canceled after only one airing. Just when we thought Sarah Palin had bumped old Rosie from her perch and assumed the mantle of America’s most ridiculously spectacular train wreck, Rosie colludes with NBC to wrest back her crown. (I mean really, a variety show? What’s next, Christian Slater in a spy show? Oh, wait…) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FSvg_CHEcg

9) World’s fattest man gets hitched…to a truck that wheels him off to his wedding! The one cool thing about being a fat a$$ of this magnitude is apparently never having to wear clothes. It would be safe to assume that out of all the stories on this list, pound-for-pound this was the biggest. OK, I’ll stop. Don’t worry, it’s almost over. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHhe981Okmk

10) The Black Friday Stampede at Walmart. I don’t know what’s zanier, the fact that this happened or the media’s contextualizing of it. Then again, we are referring to the media of which Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Greta Van Susteren, Bill Bennett, Lou Dobbs and Nancy Grace are members. Well, this concludes the list. Stuff your stockings, spike you egg nog, make copies of your tuchus at the office Christmas party and have a happy new year… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5S6UKRaM5fA

Don’t despair, humble minions. Regardless of these grave moments of ignominy, the world is actually resetting to normal pre-Bush levels of sanity. See you next year when we wrap up the Y2K Decade!

uhm..well my family is christian..i was brought up in a christian belief since as a baby…and until i became a teenager, i believed in God….but as i grew older, maturerer and “wiser” , i began to have doubts about the existence of God as when i used to ask for stuff..and never be answered…but now im opening my eyes and realizing that God has a different plan in my life when he doesnt responds to my prayers..for instance: i always used to pray to retunr back to my country…but i didnt..and maybe God thinks its best for me..and recently i prayed for God to help someone…and He did.! i’m guessing that just beleiving in God is a big thing…its like believing that ghosts exist..i believe in God from this day on…its all about faith…and also i plant to accept God as my SAvior…but i want to be really sure…

so anywaysz… the question is…. tell me an event that has happened that made you be sure 100 percent that God really does exist.

Okay so my best friend and I have been planning to go to Rock The Universe (a christian concert thing at universal studios) all summer together because she went last year and i didn’t get to go, and this will be her last year with us (she’s moving in spring) so i’m trying to spend a lot of time with her ‘cuz I’m REALLY sad she’s leaving, so I was gonna go with her and her whole church, and see some of my other friends that I havnt seen in awhile down there…

On the other hand I’ve been invited to this huge surprise birthday party (that my bff wasn’t invited to because she doesnt go to my school) for my other friend, who’s turning 16. The date of the party wasn’t confirmed when I agreed to it (they had to see what date they could rent this building out) and I was soooooo excited ‘cuz this would be my first real highschool party and my OTHER best friend was going to go with me and we were all excited together.

Well the date got confirmed and… it’s on the same weekend that I’m going down to Orlando!!!

Now I have to pick between my two best friends (well, one best friend and the other + the rest of my friends) and I don’t know…

I’ve already explained to both that I’m going to have to choose and they’re waiting on my answer… But every time I think I’ve picked one I get really upset I’ll miss the other and I change my mind!

So… now I’m asking YOU! Which one do you think will be better….?

Who will host- plan a Corporate Event?

Planning and delivering a corporate event may seem daunting but with a little thought and training, you can be sure of running and enjoying an excellent corporate event.

When should you schedule your Corporate Event?

Ensure it’s not on a night that clashes with your local football team playing. Yes I know, we talked about this football lark being all pervading but that’s just how it is. Whenever we set our evening events, we always look at the local team’s fixture list; after all, Kintish are based in Manchester! While you are looking at the Calendar, see what other events are on as well.
In the case of the ‘big corporate event’, schedule it to be a 5.30 for 6 start.
Conversely, when you hold seminars, which are a different concept entirely, consider early morning starts to finish around 10.They are becoming quite popular as people have had breakfast, done their networking and are in the office raring to go for, nearly, a full day’s work.

Where should you hold you Corporate Event?

Chose a venue that someone you know has recommended. Talk to the venue and discuss your requirements in detail. After the discussion set out in WRITING your requirements and ensure that they agree to these. Something always goes wrong on the night anyway but at least you can negotiate down the bill! You should remember that the venue is just as interested in talking to your corporate clients as you are. They will want to keep you all happy.

What is your Corporate Event about?

If you don’t know, why are you holding a corporate event? This is one of the most important aspects of your event planning. The theme must be consistent and the audience must be relevant.

Has the business, as a whole, decided on the whom?

You’re going to find partners will invite some inappropriate guests and there’s not much you can do about it. Grandma is invited (“she was around when I became a partner”); the next-door neighbor, a client of a competing firm, is there. He’s the managing partner’s best mate and goes to all the family celebrations. Such is life.
Having accepted these get down to serious invitees and chose carefully. The issue here is, “Yes, let’s invite her, you just never know”.
It depends on your budget how loose you want to be with your largesse. If you have a small budget then only invite the clients and associates who bring you business. If you have a larger budget then you can look further to those who might bring you business. Do think about your guest list when you run annual events. I get invited every year to a corporate event for which I am most grateful. The partners in the business were once my business partners so I guess they invite me for old time’s sake.
From past experiences this is where I saw the biggest wastage,
“But they come every year” they would say
“Yes, but have they sent us any referrals in the last 8 years?” I would reply
“No, but they might and it would be such a shame blah”
And so on
I only mention all this to stop you wasting money as we so often did.
Something to consider: Is it worth paying an event organizer or should people ‘in marketing’ do it? If it takes chargeable people away from their core business activities, then an event organizer is an option.

Invitation

Invitations should be out 5 weeks before the event. It gives people a chance to organize their diaries but not forget about the event. You’ve sorted out the perfect guest list for the 75th celebrations.125 invitees say they’re coming so I’d budget for 90, any more and you’ll be taking the leftovers home for the kids and dogs. If you’ve neither, warmed up quiches aren’t too bad the next day.

Who will host?

I believe this to be a key issue in whether the event is a success. This part of the planning is often left until very late. A number of key people find a ‘reason’ not be to there. A very good reason, of course. And then at 3.30 on the day of the Corporate Event, the key organizers realise there are only 5 people available and the panic starts. ‘Ben in accounts can be there, just noticed he’s got a new suit on.’ ‘I’ll ask Karen the receptionist she knows everyone. Maybe we can persuade her not to go to her salsa dancing class tonight.’
You’ve all been there I don’t need to highlight the matter further. Just make sure you get absolute commitment from those who act as hosts.

Pre Corporate Event briefing

The firm is spending £10,000 cash and numerous untold lost chargeable hours on this event. Fine, but what do you want from it?
Once you have decided on who is going to host, sometime within 36 hours of the start, get all the team together. This should be run like a military campaign. How many hosts should there be? A good ratio is 7:1. You will get these hosts to agree to spend little or no time huddled together like a rugby scrum any time during the event. Their roll is as follows:
Introductions of guest to guest and between hosts a quick recognition nod and interaction in a group of guests should be the only time communication occurs. After all, there are at least 7 guests apiece to care for!

Everyone needs to agree on certain issues.
• What is required from the event?
• What is known about the guests?
• Who is going to meet and greet?
• Who are the VIP’s and the ‘must speak to’ guests?
• Who already knows who?
• Who is going to talk to whom?
• What signals and gestures will be used for ‘parking’ guests?
• Who is going to introduce who to whom?
• What time are the various members of the team going to be there?
• What time do we expect the last guest will go home? 6 to 9 doesn’t mean anything to guests having a wonderful time!

Corporate Event Food

There is friendly and unfriendly networking food. Friendly food is in small bite sized bits sometimes with wooden sticks through the middle. You can handle it easily and it won’t ruin your guests’ clothes. Vanilla slices, chocolate cream gateaux or large buns filled with egg mayonnaise are unfriendly foods. Plan to offer the former.

Guests’ lists

If you want a higher positive response than normal consider sending out a list of invitees with the invitations. Something as simple as, ‘We are pleased to announce delegates from the following companies have been invited.’ Those looking to meet specific companies will more likely accept. You do want the venue to be full, don’t you?
Whenever we host events, be they social or seminars and workshops we always provide a list of attendees. We obtain permission from the guests first of course. Only once did someone ask to be left off but as he was a member of an anti-crime bureau I understood his reticence. This is an added bonus for everyone and those who have the networking savvy will use this information to best advantage. You may deem it more appropriate at the big events to hand out the guest list at the end of the evening. This could be contained with the going home pack.

Badges and going home packs

How many times do you attend an event and the logo of the host is 4 times the size of your name on the badge? This event is marketing and marketing is all about the client, the prospect and the professional connection. Make the badges, like the food, user friendly. For all our events and seminars we print a BIG Christian name a smaller surname, a line, and then the company name. It makes it so much easier for you and your guests and stops certain people from leering!
If you send people away with a memento or even a marketing pack consider personalising the letter in the envelope. If you put the guest list in, include in the letter something to the effect of ‘If there was someone here this evening you didn’t get a chance to meet, please give us a call to make the necessary introduction. In the letter don’t forget to include thanking guests for spending their valuable time with you.
When we hold seminars we feel obliged to write at the top of the delegate list, ‘This is for information purposes only to use for future contact with people you have met today. Please do not blanket mail or email. Networking is about building relationships; contacting everyone regardless will have the opposite effect.’

An armed Christian organization,the ” Right Wing Extreme”, will protect a church that is planning to host an “International Burn a Quran Day” on the ninth anniversary of September 11, the church’s pastor said on Tuesday.

The Dove World Outreach Center, in Gainesville, Florida, says it is hosting the event to remember 9/11 victims and to take a stand against Islam. With promotions on its website and Facebook page, the nondenominational church invites Christians to burn the Muslim holy book.

Right Wing Extreme, which offered to go to the church with between 500 and 2,000 men on September 11.The organization is described as an armed civilian militia group.

I’m all for 1st amendment rights, but this sound like a train wreck. So who’s going and how much are tickets?

i am helping plan a high school girls retreat at my (non-denominational christian) church. our theme is “free”, the theme verse being john 8:32 (and then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free). I need a big, fun event relevant to high school girls and to the freedom theme. please keep in mind that i only have about $1500 in the budget.

all help appreciated!!

How to plan a Corporate Event

When should you Schedule your Corporate Event?

Ensure it’s not on a night that clashes with your local football team playing. Yes I know, we talked about this football lark being all pervading but that’s just how it is. Whenever we set our evening events, we always look at the local team’s fixture list; after all, Kintish are based in Manchester! While you are looking at the Calendar, see what other events are on as well.

In the case of the ‘big corporate event’, schedule it to be a 5.30 for 6 start.
Conversely, when you hold seminars, which are a different concept entirely, consider early morning starts to finish around 10.They are becoming quite popular as people have had breakfast, done their networking and are in the office raring to go for, nearly, a full day’s work.

Where should you hold you Corporate Event?

Chose a venue that someone you know has recommended. Talk to the venue and discuss your requirements in detail. After the discussion set out in WRITING your requirements and ensure that they agree to these. Something always goes wrong on the night anyway but at least you can negotiate down the bill! You should remember that the venue is just as interested in talking to your corporate clients as you are. They will want to keep you all happy.

What is your Corporate Event about?

If you don’t know, why are you holding a corporate event? This is one of the most important aspects of your event planning. The theme must be consistent and the audience must be relevant .

Has the business, as a whole, decided on the whom?

You’re going to find partners will invite some inappropriate guests and there’s not much you can do about it. Grandma is invited (“she was around when I became a partner”); the next-door neighbour, a client of a competing firm, is there. He’s the managing partner’s best mate and goes to all the family celebrations. Such is life.
Having accepted these get down to serious invitees and chose carefully. The issue here is, “ Yes, let’s invite her, you just never know”.

It depends on your budget how loose you want to be with your largesse. If you have a small budget then only invite the clients and associates who bring you business. If you have a larger budget then you can look further to those who might bring you business. Do think about your guest list when you run annual events. I get invited every year to a corporate event for which I am most grateful. The partners in the business were once my business partners so I guess they invite me for old times sake.

From past experiences this is where I saw the biggest wastages,
“But they come every year” they would say
“Yes, but have they sent us any referrals in the last 8 years?” I would reply
“No, but they might and it would be such a shame blah blah blah”
And so on
I only mention all this to stop you wasting money as we so often did.
Something to consider: Is it worth paying an event organiser or should people ‘in marketing’ do it? If it takes chargeable people away from their core business activities, then an events organiser is an option.

Invitations
