Small group of Alberta pilgrims has great hopes for World Youth Day experience
A much smaller group of pilgrims than usual is heading off to World Youth Day from Edmonton next week. But the anticipation is huge.
“I am nervous and excited,” said Ann-Maria Au, who will be attending her first World Youth Day (WYD) in Panama. “Excited because this is my first time going on a pilgrimage and backpacking but also eagerly waiting to see what the Lord has in store for me during this trip,” said Au. “Nervous because I am an introvert ̶ so being with people 24/7 and being surrounded by crowds isn’t an ideal situation for an introvert.”
