World Youth Day Cross stops Melbourne!

A multicultural procession through the streets of Melbourne was the first event today. Thousands of people joined in the walk as the many migrant communities of Melbourne hosted the Cross and Icon. The vibrant and colourful procession began in Brunswick and continued down Rathdowne street, through the CBD and Federation Square before finishing at Birrarung Marr.

The Society of St Vincent de Paul also hosted the Cross and Icon today. Members from all across Victoria gathered to celebrate and reflect around these great symbols. We heard testimonies from members and learnt about the society’s involvement in World Youth Day.

Tonight finished off with a Gala Event at the Melbourne Town Hall. We heard from a panel of special guests who shared about how they put their Faith into action. We also enjoyed the awesome music of the Planet Shakers and other bands.
