WYD08

World Youth Day is actually a week and involves the Pope's visit to Sydney.
Pilgrims/Tourists/Participants gather from all over the world. New Zealand is sending 4000 New Zealand youth.
My sister is attending this with her husband. Actually she was one of the 100 New Zealanders who attended in Italy three years ago in 2005. So I hope they and everyone attending have a great time. Preparation for the trip involved a lot of community work and fundraising so it is a great achievement to make this commitment.

Some online sites to visit include:

www.xt3.com
www.connect.org.nz
americancatholic.org (then click seasonal features, wyd)
www.ewtn.com/wyd2008


So when I get some space I will check out these sites.
