Tuesday, 25 July: Sofía and Hanus, two young adult parishioners departed for Lisbon, Portugal, where they participated in the World Youth Day. They went with a group of 200 young Catholics from Denmark.
They spent a week with Catholic families and parishes getting to know the region in which they stayed, followed by a week of special activities including a welcoming service, instruction, workshops and concerts, a Way of the Cross, a Vigil of Prayer and a Closing Mass presided by Pope Francis. They also participated in an optional week during which they visited the Camino de Santiago, also known as Compostela, in the north of Portugal, and the international Marian Shrine of Our Lady in Fatima (near Lisbon).
Both Hanus and Sofía also had a short interview on Portuguese national television. The news clip (English – Portugeuse) can be viewed HERE.
We look forward to learning more about their experience later.
