It is anticipated that we will have a Diocesan group (17-35 yrs) travelling to Madrid for a week to participate in the World Youth Days.

We are holding three Information Meetings about W.Y.D on:

  • Sunday 18th April in Newbridge parish at 2.30pm
  • Sunday 25th April in Askea Parish at 2.30pm
  • Sunday 25th April in Portlaoise Parish at 2.30pm

These meetings will provide an opportunity for young people interested in the trip to find out more details and register their interest in travelling.

World Youth Day is an excellent opportunity for young Catholics worldwide to come together and celebrate the faith they share.� 2011 will be the 26th W.Y.D and the theme will be

�Rooted and Built Up in Jesus Christ, Firm in the Faith�. (Colossians 2:7)
