Are you heading to World Youth Day in Madrid this year? Do you wish you were heading to World Youth Day? Either way, you are going to get a chance to experience Life Teen at World Youth Day this year.
Life Teen has a big event planned as a part of World Youth Day. Over the past few months we’ve been working with the WYD organizing committee in Madrid to coordinate what will arguably be the biggest XLT of the year at World Youth Day! Our event is the evening of August 18th, immediately following Pope Benedict the 16th’s official opening to World Youth Day.
What, you can’t be there? Well – we’ve got you covered. We are taking our media team over to Madrid to not only take some awesome pics, but to video the events as they happen. With St. Claire’s intercession and a strong internet connection, we will be posting video daily to LifeTeen.com.
If you are coming to WYD 2011 Madrid we will be hanging out at our booth in the Vocations area – it’s located at the vocations fair in “El Parque Retiro.” We’re open Tuesday, August 16 – Saturday August 20 from 10: 00AM – 10:00PM (except Saturday when it closes at 3:00PM and during our event on Thursday night.)
