Shalom at heart of renewal
Marijana Rajcic ‘MJ’ (above left):
"Today was the first day that for me World Youth
Day really started. It was the moment so many
different people from all around the world came
together. Australia, France, Lithuania, Ecuador,
Argentina, Czech Republic and of course Poland.
It is something that cannot be described.
“The energy, the connections you make with
people from just making eye contact or dancing
or simply giving each other a ‘high five’ is truly
amazing. It is honestly the love God talks about.
The love God wants us to share and have with
our brothers and sisters. I know I'm a crazy
person myself in everyday life, but today I was
truly alive and in my element. Something I will
Holly Roberts (above with flag):
"Meeting my Polish family has been the biggest
highlight of WYD so far. They have really
accepted us with open arms and I feel like I have
sisters of my own. I was a bit apprehensive about
staying with people that I had never met and
didn't speak the same language as, but I already
know that it will be very sad when we have to say
Jaceck, Ania, Zuzia and Nina are so lovely and
I know that we will keep in contact in the future.
Poland is such a wonderful country and the faith
is so alive here, especially among the young
people! God’s presence is felt everywhere here,
from the shrine of the Black Madonna to the top
of the Beskidy mountains. I'm so proud to be a
part of this trip."
Pilgrims unite at Days in the Diocese
A ‘Year of Youth’ will be celebrated
by the Church in Australia in 2018,
building on the legacy of World
Youth Day, Sydney in 2008.
The event was announced during a
gathering of Australian pilgrims at
World Youth Day in Poland in July.
Addressing the gathering, Australian
Catholic Bishops delegate for
youth, Bishop Mark Edwards, said
the years of preparation leading up
to World Youth Day 2008 and its
events “changed the landscape of
youth ministry”, leaving a “lasting
impression on the Church”.
“Local youth ministries have grown
and diversified. The number of
youth ministers has increased along
with diocesan support structures.
“The anniversary of WYD08
provides an opportunity to refocus
our commitment to a three-
year cycle of events setting a
new standard for continuously
renewing the Church’s mission of
evangelisation in young people,” he
The ‘Year of Youth’ will launch in
Sydney in December 2017 during
the Australian Catholic Youth
Festival, which is expected to
attract more than 15,000 people.
