World Youth Day (WYD)

Welcome home to our pilgrims from World Youth Day which took place in Lisbon this year. Fr. Francis Xavier has an excellent summary video which can be viewed on the following link

World Youth Day (WYD) is the gathering of young people from all over the world with the Pope. It is also a pilgrimage, a celebration of youth, an expression of the universal Church and an intense moment of evangelization for the youth world. Although its Catholic identity is clearly evident, WYD opens its doors to everyone, no matter how close to or distant from the Church they are.
