Young Indian Vincentians for WYD 2008

Young Vincentions for WYD 2008

by Jesuvera from Bathurst (Australia)

Accompanying me on my WYD trip from Mumbai to Sydney (via Singapore, Perth) were a group of 10 excited Vincentians from India. Thanks to them I had company all the way till Bathurst.

At Bathurst we parted ways. They went over to Vincentian Family Celebration (FAMVIN WYD) organized by FAMVIN Australia at St Stanislaus College, 9 to 13 July 2008. I came over to the "Days in the Diocese", the diocesan cultural exchange program preceeding the WYD at Sydney during the same days as FAMVIN.

The 10 vincentians from India are part of more than 300 vincentian family members (representatives from the Congregation of the Mission, The Daughters of Charity and the St Vincent de Paul Society) coming from 33 countries - Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Cambodia, Canada, China, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Fiji, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Lebanon, Myanmar, New Zealand, Nigeria, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Singapore, Solomon Islands, South Africa, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Tonga, United States, Vanuatu, Vietnam and Zimbabwe.
