Australia's Young People Prepare for WYD 2016

With just over 18 months to go before Poland's ancient city of Krakow hosts World Youth Day in 2016, Catholic Youth Services (CYS) is holding a special WYD information evening for Sydney pilgrims on Wednesday, 26 November.

"This World Youth Day is going to be a faith and cultural experience like no other," says Bernard Toutounji, Director of CYS, pointing out that not only was Poland the homeland of St John Paul II, the father of World Youth Day, but Krakow was where he served as a parish priest as a young man and as Archbishop of Krakow from 1964 until his election as Pope in 1978.

The Archdiocese of Sydney's Road to Krakow Information evening will begin with a light supper at 6.30 pm and will be held in the hall of St Dominic's Catholic Church which is next door to the CYS offices at 108 The Crescent, Homebush West.

The evening, which has special relevance to parish youth ministry coordinators or youth leaders, will conclude at 8.30 pm.

Those who wish to participate in this, the first of the CYS's planned Road to Krakow information evenings should RSVP to wyd@catholicyouthservices.org. Visit the Facebook Event Page for more.
