Join us for World Youth Day 2011 in Madrid

Saturday, June 12, 2010
The English Dominicans are hoping to take a group of pilgrims, aged from 16 to 35, to the World Youth Day celebrations in Madrid from 13 -22 August 2011. If you're interested and would like more details, write to wyd@english.op.org

Every three years, young Catholics from all over the world converge in a city to celebrate their faith with the Holy Father and with one another. The events take place over five days.

As a Dominican pilgrimage, we also plan to visit, en route to Madrid, the tomb of St Thomas Aquinas in Toulouse, the birthplace of St Dominic in Caleruega and the city of Ávila.

Once in Madrid, we shall take part in the World Youth Day celebrations with over a million Catholics, join in events organized by the Dominican Family, and stay in Dominican priories and institutions. This will truly be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

For more information on WYD 2011 events visit the official website.

There's no obligation at this stage: if you're interested in joining our WYD 2011 Pilgrimage, or if you just want to find out more information about the itinerary and cost, send an email to wyd@english.op.org.

The Godzdogz Team hopes to see you next summer in Spain!
