El Camino!

Vancouver Catholic youth gear up for World Youth Day 2011 with event at Corpus Christi
Not every young Catholic will be in Spain for World Youth Day 2011. However they have an opportunity to join the young pilgrims for an event at Corpus Christi Parish on July 23.

The event is dubbed Camino, referencing El Camino de Santiago or Way of St. James. Tradition teaches this pilgrimage leading to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is where the remains St. James the Apostle are buried.

Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB will lead the Mass and bless the Madrid bound pilgrims. Eucharistic Adoration and Reconciliation will follow.

The keynote speaker for the event is Makani Marquis, webmaster for the Archdiocese of Vancouver and part time Hermit. Makani will be sharing his pilgrimage experiences and how it can enhance one's faith for those up to the challenge.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. which includes activities and food with a purchase of a five dollar event pass. Corpus Christi Parish is located at 6350 Nanaimo Street in Vancouver.

  1. Thanks for the info! I have always wanted to come and participate in the World Youth Day but haven't had the opportunity. I guess there are equally important events we could join. I hope our Parish has some too!
