While most people are familiar with World Youth Day in its international form, which takes place every 2-3 years, many don’t also know that there is a diocesan version that takes place every year on Palm Sunday. This year was particularly special for me, as I had a chance to celebrate it as auxiliary bishop for the first time.
I did a fair amount of live tweeting that day, so I won’t repeat everything here, but I thought I’d post a couple of pictures:
This first photo is from a catechism session I did in the basement of Santa Cruz parish for the teenagers. I also did a catechism upstairs with the young adults.
This second photo is from our procession through the steets of Montreal. It was amazing — the police closed some fairly major streets for us as we walked, and people were stopping on the sidewalk or leaning out their windows to see us pass by, carrying our palms. It felt good to share the faith that I love with the city that I love.
