Aussie Volunteer's Private Lunch with Pope at WYD!

World Youth Day volunteer, West Australian Josephine Yustira was one of two pilgrims chosen to represent Oceania at a private lunch with Pope Francis during the six day celebrations in Rio de Janeiro.

A relaxed intimate lunch with the Holy Father for 12 WYD pilgrims is a traditional feature of World Youth Day. This year the six men and six women were selected from among the young volunteers who had worked so tirelessly to help make WYD in Rio such a success. Each of those invited represented one of the world's five great continents, two came from host nation Brazil, and two each from the Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania.
