WYD Juventutem Events Part One

Apologies to readers for the lack of coverage of Juventutem and WYD events thus far. Everyone has been so involved with the ceremonies and celebrations that finding time to prepare posts has been impossible. But now, with everything over, we are able to present a series of pictorial reports for readers. They are not in chronological order.

Our first presentation is of the Pontifical Mass at the faldstool celebrated by +Monsignor Basil Meeking (Emeritus Bishop of Christchurch). This was a Votive Mass of the Holy Cross, celebrated on the morning of Friday, 18th July. Monsignor Meeking also presented a Catechesis to Juventutem pilgrims before the Mass. The venue was Saint Augustine's church, Balmain.

We would like to gratefully acknowledge the warm and generous hospitality extended to Juventutem pilgrims by the pastor and parishioners of Saint Augustine, Balmain.
