WYD Cross & Icon stop traffic in Melbourne City

After a huge Mass at the Cathedral last night, the Cross & Icon were again the centre of attention today – this time throughout the streets of Melbourne City!

Proceedings started outside the MCG where we prayed for a healthy sporting culture, before processing throughout the populated areas of the city. We stopped at various places of significance to offer up petitions, and spent the rest of the walk in song. Roads were closed off as a group of mainly young people carried these great symbols with pride. What a great witness!

Our destination was St Francis of Assisi, the oldest Church in Melbourne. In between their hectic schedule of Sunday masses, a full church gathered and participated in a liturgy, which included a very inspiring & moving time of veneration.
