invitation to the young and the not so young.
The theme for the XXXI World Youth Day

25 July to 1 August, 2016, is taken from the
Gospel of Matthew 5:7 "Blessed are the
merciful, for they shall receive mercy."
On behalf of Bishop Bill and our entire
diocesan community, we ar e inviting
people of all ages to experience an ama zing
jour ney of discovery and renewal by
joining millions of pilgrims from across the
world to par ticipate in World Youth Day
2016. Our intergener ational pilgrimage
will offer par ticipants a chance to connect
with the past and shape their future
a s they experience the profound and
transformative power of pilgrimage.
Our intergener ational pilgrimage
experience, "In the Footsteps of Saints",

and home of some of the Church's greatest
saints : St Francis and St Clare of Assisi, St

The Cathedral in Kraków where St John Paul II was archbishop.
John Paul II, in whose home town we will
be celebr ating World Youth Day.
We will commence our jour ney in Venice
with a welcome dinner. This night provides
us with the chance to move from our
ever yday lives and begin our jour ney
together, to stop thinking about 'me' as
an individual and begin thinking about 'us'
as a community. This is why we believe
it is so impor tant for our pilgrimage to
be intergenerational; we can celebr ate
together, share our per spectives and lear n
from each other.
After experiencing Venice we will travel to
Milan, Padua , Siena, Assisi and Casica and
encounter the land, culture and history that
inspired the saints . In Rome we will pr ay
at the tomb of St John Paul II ('JPII') and
complete our Mercy Pilgrimage by walking
through the holy "Door of Mercy" in St
Peter's Basilica, before flying to Poland for
the WYD 2016 week.
In Poland we will visit sites such as the
shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa (the
Black Madonna), the concentration camp at
Auschwitz where St Ma ximilian Kolbe was
mar tyred, and Wadowice, the home town
of 'JPII'. In Kr aków we will par ticipate in the
WYD experience, which includes a visit
to the Sanctuary of Divine Mercy and the

highlight, a closing Mass celebr ated by Pope
Fr ancis. Our pilgrimage will conclude with a
retreat experience in the Beskidy Mountains
of Poland and a visit to Vienna from where
we will return home.
Our belief is that by walking in the footsteps
of saints whilst on pilgrimage, our way will
be made clearer through seeing where
other people of faith have walked before
us, and how the example of the saints'
lives can lead us on our way, with hear ts
and minds transfor med and renewed. The
lessons we have learned will suppor t us
on our continuing pilgrimage to tr ansform
the future as member s of the diocesan
community of Maitland-Newcastle.
