World Youth Day @ Home
WYD@Home was celebrated at Alton Castle from 7th June and closed on 9th June – Pentecost Sunday. We were many young people, priests, bishops and religious who came together in fraternity to be renewed in the Holy Spirit, and reflect on themes taken up at World Youth Day in Panama 2019. It was an excellent opportunity to share and witness to our faith and joy in the Lord.
The days were wet, especially the Saturday; the winds of the Holy Spirit (?) even lifted up the tea room tent! Thank goodness we had religious who were able to anchor the poles and keep us all down-to-earth! We had a great time, fun, prayer, sharing, sacraments, music, comedy and excellent conversations in the “listening hub” tent. Thank you all for making it a memorable event!
