World Youth Day Information Sessions

Are you interested in being a part of the Diocesan pilgrimage to Europe this year? 

The Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle extends an invitation to its parishioners, school staff and students in Year 10 and Year 11 to participate in a Diocesan Pilgrimage to Italy, Poland and Austria in July/August this year.

Part of our pilgrimage will involve attending World Youth Day in Krakow, Poland in late July.

Three information sessions on the Diocesan Pilgrimage will be held at 6:00pm at the following locations over the next two weeks:

Thursday, 11 February - St Mary's Parish Hall, Taree (located next to the church)
Monday, 15 February - CUSA Rooms, Sowerby St, Muswellbrook
Tuesday, 16 February - Toohey Room, Diocesan Offices, Hunter St Newcastle. 

The sessions will go for about an hour. Come along and learn more about the pilgrimage, itinerary, costing and World Youth Day in Krakow – the home of St John Paul II.
