World Youth Day 2016 - my Facebook posts - part 1

As I’m sure most of you will know, World Youth Day, the international Catholic youth festival held twice every five years, took place in Poland this summer. Here’s a sample of the Facebook posts that I wrote during the event, to give you a flavour of what we got up to.

July 20th

Met up with the 120 French and Spanish young people, accompanied by our team of young adult group leaders and Brothers. I hadn't finished eating and I was already being interviewed by Polish tv!! And now, we are in a local stadium doing The Birdie Song in Polish!!! Happy days :-)



... followed by some crazy zumba and Uptown Funk!! 2 local Polish priests got in on the act!!


A beautiful mass in Kluczbork with our Polish hosts, the music led by a talented group of local young musicians.

July 21st

It's a small world. One of the Polish priests I spoke with last night is a missionary in Togo. He's brought to World Youth Day in Poland two young Togolese men from his parish in... Kara!!! = just next to the parish of the orphanage where ‪#‎TeamWin‬ worked in 2007 and 2011...

And it gets better!! The same Polish priest visited England last year, spending 5 days with a friend in... Southampton, in MY HOME PARISH, c'est pas vrai... Si !!! :-)
