Catholic Youth Parramatta

pilgrims PRAYER

A prayer for the Catholic Diocese of Parramatta's pilgrims travelling to World Youth Day 2011 Madrid.


Ever loving God, we give you thanks for the many blessing we receive in this life. Thank you for the gift of World Youth Day to our young people. We ask your blessing on all our Pilgrims at World Youth Day in Madrid. Bless them on their pilgrimage and help them to build on the many graces and experiences that were the fruit of the World Youth Day in Sydney.


Guide them along right paths by bestowing on them the power of the Holy Spirit, so that they may continue to be your witnesses in the world.


May this pilgrimage renew their faith and confidence in you, and strengthen the bond of communion as they journey together, so that the fruits of their experience might bring renewal to the Church of Parramatta.


We ask this through the intercession of Our Lady of the Southern Cross and in the name of our Lord Jesus, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit one God forever and ever.



Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop. Pray for us.

Blessed John Paul II. Pray for us.

Piligrms Damien, Stephanie, Samantha, Rose, Gerianne and Thomas reflect on the early days of the Pilgrim Way World Youth Day pilgrimage through France.

Bonjour Pilgrims! Croissants, Esgargots, Barets...oui oui!

The Eiffel tower is not the only monument to see in Paris. We managed to visit Notre Dame in Paris it was a great experience, very beautiful to see!

It is a must do, when you visit France.The weather on that day was overcast and quite cool.

We got off the metro and we were greeted by the famous bell tower and stained glass circular window of Notre Dame.

We took a group shot and headed in through the doors.

We went inside and saw beautiful candles lit for prayer intentions at the entrance of the doors.

We walked further more to see many altars on the side of the church, each dedicated to Our Lady, Jesus, St. Joan of Arc to name a few.

The ceilings are more grand than that of St. Mary's Cathedral in Sydney City.

Everyone had there own chance to say there own prayers.
