Symbols of salvation come to suburbs of Perth

The Cross & Icon’s first destination today was the St John of God Hospital, Subiaco, where a Mass was held in the chapel. On the feast of Mary Help of Christians Fr Chris’ homily focussed on the Icon, especially its origins of how it became to be known as the Salvation (or Health) of the Roman People.

Next the Cross & Icon were greeted by the lively Neo-Catechumen community and processed to the nearby church at Claremont for a liturgy. It was great to hear testimonies from two young people at this event about their faith journeys and to share in the wonderful community events that continued well after the Cross & Icon’s departure.

Later in the day, Woodvale parish welcomed the Cross & Icon with a Mass.

I think World Youth Day is a great experience for all people to come together as a community to celebrate unity within the church.

It is also a great experience to travel with friend and meet people from all over the world!!!

I think World youth day is a very valuble experience for young people all over the world. Young people across the globe are able to come together, put all differences aside, and celebrate the one thing which they all share and have in common; their faith. It is also an opportunity for people to come together and celebrate, meet new people, have fun and most of all combine all different religions across the world.
