World Youth Day, Sydney 2008

The first group has arrived!

After nearly 30 hours of being in airports and airplanes, the first group of 18 pilgrims, including Bishop Cantú have arrived to New Zealand.

We arrived at 5 am on July 7 in the small town of Waiuku which is where we will be staying for the next five days. (New Zealand is 17 hours ahead of Texas) We received a warm traditional welcome from parishioners of St. Anthony here in Waiuku, followed by a delicious breakfast, and have now been divided into our host families.

New Zealand is extremely beautiful, filled with green pastures and tall trees, and everyone is extremely kind.

Thank you for your prayers. Please continue to pray for future departing groups and keep watching for more details on what our daily activities consist of here in New Zealand.
