We have a very special visitor to our church tonight

Tonight we are going to witness something very special in our church.

This year in July, Sydney will be the host to World Youth Day (WYD). You can read details about it here.

The cross and icons have travelled all over the world and our church is one of the lucky few to take part in some "once in a lifetime" events.
The cross will be arriving at about 10pm - yes PM tonight. Our family is going along and then there is a vigil til 4am tomorrow morning where there will be a special mass - the cross and icons will then travel on the journey to the next destination. We are holding an early breakfast in our Parish Centre which should be lots of fun - hopefully I will be awake by then as I am helping serve breakfast.

Really looking forward to it - oooh that reminds me - must charge the batteries on our camera........have to be organised.

Just had to share with you.

Luv Sandie
