The Icon and Cross…full WA calendar

21 May 2008

By The Record

In May and June the World Youth Day Cross and Icon will visit Catholic schools and parishes in a 20-day whirlwind tour of Western Australia. Schools and parishes have planned a blitz of activities in which everyone can participate and, organisers hope, the visit of these international travelling symbols will help focus attention on World Youth Day in Sydney from July 15-20. Here is the program for the visit. Is one of these events near you?


The World Youth Day cross is carried at a rally of some 7,000 people in Sydney, Australia, July 1 after it arrived in the country the same day. The cross will travel throughout Australia in advance of the July 2008 World Youth Day in Sydney. Photo: CNS
