Gearing up for WYD

Monday, July 25, 2011

The English Dominican Pilgrimage to World Youth Day (WYD) in Madrid will run from 12-22 August 2011, and a group of just under 50 young people, including monks and friars, will be heading from London across France to Spain. En route to Madrid, we will take in Toulouse, where St Thomas Aquinas is buried, the famous Benedictine monastery of Santo Domingo de Silos, Caleruega, where St Dominic was born, and Valladolid, where a famous debate involving Bartolomé de Las Casas took place in 1550-51 concerning the rights of the natives of the Americas.

Before setting off on this pilgrimage, a few members of the group met in London for Mass in Westminster Cathedral, followed by lunch, and then a visit to the exhibitions of religious art and relics at both the National Gallery and the British Museum. Please pray for us as we prepare to go on this youth pilgrimage. Godzdogz will be publishing daily posts on the events of WYD as they happen.
