Living Catholic e-News July 2016
Countdown to WYD Krakow
Friends, family and parishioners will have the opportunity to follow the journey of 2500 World Youth Day pilgrims travelling to Poland via the live webcast of events on the digital platform Xt3.com.
From 26-31 July, main events from Krakow will be broadcast live at: www.xt3.com/live.
In addition to the young people, chaplains, teachers and youth leaders heading for Poland, half of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference will celebrate St John Paul II’s vision for young people, renewed again with the presence of Pope Francis.
Pope Francis will arrive on Thursday July 28 and the Way of the Cross will be held on Friday afternoon of July 29. A vigil Mass will take place on Saturday 30 July and on Sunday morning 31 July, the final papal Mass will conclude the international event.
Bishops and pilgrims will arrive in Krakow after spending some time on various group pilgrimages, including walking through the Holy Doors at St Peter’s Basilica in Rome, reliving the scriptures by travelling through the Holy Land and tracing the footsteps of Pope John Paul II across Poland.
As young South Australian Catholics travel from Adelaide to Krakow in Poland for World Youth Day 2016, The Southern Cross newspaper editor Jenny Brinkworth will provide a daily update on the pilgrimage journey through The Southern Cross and social media posts (The Southern Cross Facebook page and WYDblog).
