World Youth Day, Sydney 2008

Enjoying New Zealand

with one comment

The Mass, as Bishop Cantú mentioned, was celebrated at the local regional park. You can see how beautiful it was in the picture included. It was a great day for all of these outdoor events. It was also a great sight to see the San Antonians (including Bishop Cantú) and locals of Waiuku playing a game of rugby and although the weather is quite cold over here, we also managed to make a trip to the beach today.

At this time we are preparing dinner for a multicultural potluck dinner we will be celebrating at St. Anthony’s hall followed by a cultural evening sharing dance and music.

Two more of the four San Antonio groups will be departing on July 8. Please continue to pray for all those traveling.

For all family members and friends reading these blogs, please know that we are praying for you and we love you very much. As always, please watch out for future postings.

  1. It is wonderful to know that you all have arrived safely and have been received with such a personal and warm New Zealand welcome. I am thankful for your prayers and you all continue to be in our prayers. The pictures of the outdoor mass depict the true warmth and love that the people there share and what a beautiful place to celebrate the Eucharist. We are looking forward to hearing more about the spiritual journey that our American youth are on and how they unite with the youth of the world in prayer with our Holy Father.
