What's your WYD story?
Last edited 23rd March 2015

How does an event like World Youth Day impact on a young person’s life? Every pilgrim has a different story….. Fr Paul Kim, St Mary of the Cross MacKillop Parish Warnervale, was a young seminarian in South Korea back in 2008 when he won a writing competition that earned him a ticket to World Youth Day celebrations in Sydney, Australia. After graduating high school in 2001, Fr Paul entered the seminary at 19 years of age. Whilst searching for God in his vocation and practising his faith, he still felt he was struggling because of his young age and was looking for a ‘turning point’ in his journey.

John Paul II's Special Bond with World Youth Day
Last edited 12th March 2015

World Youth Day was initiated by Pope John Paul II, who was convinced that young people need more good advice from the Church; but rather, they also need someone to accompany them and teach them how to express themselves in the best way. This is how World Youth Day was born, and as a result a special relationship was developed between the Holy Father and the young people of the world. WYD2016 in Krakow will continue this legacy, with Saint John Paul II named as the patron Saint.
