Madrid Encounter

Faith and Life News | Catholic Diocese of Wollongong

World Youth Day @ Home



While some people are soon to jet off to celebrate World Youth Day in Madrid, there are many more who have not been able (for a variety of reasons) to pack their bags and head to Spain, so we've planned to bring some of the flavour and excitement of World Youth Day to them. On Saturday, August 20 the Diocese of Wollongong, in association with the Wollongong Youth Mission Team and the Verbum Dei Missionaries, will be presenting 'Madrid Encounter', a day-long event filled to the brim with all the things that make World Youth Day the amazing event it is, including Catechesis with Sr Hilda Scott OSB, a dramatic Way of the Cross, Reconciliation, a Spanish Fiesta, Mass followed by a Youth Festival. We also hope to get some live updates from our pilgrims direct from Madrid, Spain. All this for the bargain price of $10, which includes all meals. Pre-registration is essential for catering purposes. Head to for more information and to register. For more information contact Chris on 4284 1635.

If you're on Facebook and want to stay in touch withall things youth, find 'Catholic Youth Ministry Wollongong' and get regular updates.

There are almost one hundred young people from our diocese heading to Spain to celebrate World Youth Day. Please keep these young pilgrims in your prayers.
