World Youth Day 20011 officially opened today in Madrid and more than 500 pilgrims from the Archdiocese of Vancouver have been arriving in Spain for the past week, including Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB.

Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry director Clay Imoo says those who were unable to attend WYD themselves can follow the archdiocese's pilgrims via special accounts on Twitter and Blogspot.

Additionally, Salt and Light Television has arranged for free programming on cable providers during WYD, as well as expanded coverage online. 

Imoo also encourages the people back home to "continue to pray for a safe and blessed trip for all of the World Youth Day pilgrims, especially for those from our archdiocese."
