Bringing the solidarity of the youth from Krakow to Parañaque
Last week was the World Youth Day 2016 and everyone had their eyes on Krakow, Poland where the event was held. Around the world, events were simultaneously held to celebrate WYD for those who couldn’t make it to Poland. For example, the WYD 2016-themed event at the Tahilan Residence and Study Center.
But that’s not the only event here in the Philippines that’s simultaneous with the World Youth Day as the Our Lady of the Abandoned Vicariate in Parañaque hosted their local World Youth Day last July 31 – an event spearheaded by the parish’s Commission on Youth.
With that, the parish’s Commission on Youth released a video showing the highlights of their local World Youth Day
Local World Youth Days are not uncommon in the Philippines as there are various parishes that initiate their own Local World Youth Day to coincide with the World Youth Day itself. These events are designed to bring the World Youth Day experience to those who couldn’t make it to its venue.
The next World Youth Day is on 2019 and it will be held in the Central American nation of Panama.
