World Youth Day

A small Youth Ministry team from Saint Anthony of Padua (including Fr. Baez and Youth Minister Maria Calacan) attended the recent World Youth Day in Sydney, Australia. They found that the trip to Australia was really long -- even with a stop in California to visit the many historic missions there. Once in Australia, they found chilly winter weather (the Southern Hemisphere has winter when we have summer) as can be seen in the above picture. However, the Masses and worship services including the Pope's Mass were wonderful, uplifting experiences and the enthusiasm of the young people was inspiring. Ask Maria for details of their adventures in the "Land Down Under!"
