First Gathering for the WYD 2011 Group

The official launch of the Diocesan World Youth Day Pilgrimage will take place on Saturday evening 18th September in Askea Parish, Carlow.

All young people who have signed up will be invited to attend this event.  Mgr Brendan Byrne will preside over the Opening Mass for the WYD Group and guest speakers will share their experiences of previous WYD’s.
Pilgrims will be involved in the Liturgy and afterwards there will an opportunity for everyone to meet their fellow travelers.


Fundraising for the pilgrimage will begin shortly. Once young people have registered and paid their €100 deposit they will be assigned a fundraising group and leader.  The group will then be free to get involved in some creative and fun filled events with a view to raising much needed funds for the W.Y.D. Trip.
