Parramatta to Rio blog: Cristo Redentor


WYD Blog News Story
Rio de Janeiro from atop Corcovada Hill.

The Catholic Diocese of Parramatta's WYD2013 Executive Co-ordinator Ian Jordan is currently blogging his way through South America with Diocesan Business Manager Michael Digges, making sure all is in readiness for when the Diocese's pilgrims journey to World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro next year (23 to 28 July 2013).

"No matter where you travel in Rio, whether night or day, you are drawn to the 'Cristo Redentor' (Christ The Redeemer) on top of Corcovada Hill!" Ian blogs.

"It is absolutely stunning and gives panaramic views of all of Rio. WYD officials are negotiating with local government to have this and the Sugar Loaf chairlift open '24/7' during WYD week in 2013."
