the fee to be a barrier for you to come to this fraternal meeting. If there are
any difficulties to pay the total amount, please let us know as soon as possible,
so the organizers could think how to solve it.
The group of each country should consist of six members: five young persons and
one spiritual assistant (brother or sister). Your group should represent not only
individual fraternities but also the whole National Youfra fraternity, unless it
is from a country where Youfra is not yet established. The groups from countries
where Youfra does not exist yet or is not organized as a National fraternity, should
come with at least one clerical person or SFO leader instead of spiritual assistant
in order to get acquainted with and gain experience in Youfra work.
If you are interested to come in a larger group, please let us know as soon as you
can. We will keep it in mind and let you know if free places can be offered
after a closing of the official registration.
