As at this posting there are 30 days to go for World Youth Day in Sydney.
Preparation for this event is amazing. In our own parish we are currently preparing for the pilgrims we are hosting in the week preceding WYD – Days In The Diocese. Our parish is hosting 91 Irish Pilgrims and 10 from Ghana …. and still counting. It’s an exciting time for all of us. I’ll be looking forward to meeting them all.
WYD08 will mark the first visit of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI to Australia. WYD is an invitation from the Pope to the youth of the world to celebrate their faith around a particular theme. Everyone is welcome to attend.
