The closing date for WYD applications has now past and the first meeting for all registered pilgrims travelling with the diocese to WYD in Madrid next summer will take place this Sunday afternoon 14th November in Mount Saint Anne’s Retreat Centre, Killenard, Portlaoise from 2.30pm-5.00pm.

This will be the first time those travelling will get to meet and greet their fellow pilgrims and exchange some ideas on preparations for the trip. There will be information on the day about previous WYD experiences, the itinerary for the World Youth Day week 15th-22nd August and there will be an opportunity for the young people to express their hopes and fears as they enter into this WYD experience. There will also be music, talks and group work and we look forward to welcoming the 125 young people & leaders who have signed up to travel with the diocese!
