WYD – 8/14/2011

Young Sisters representing communities of the CMSWR from across the  United States arrived safely in Madrid for the 2011 World Youth Day events. The three ports of departure – Chicago, Miami and New York were a sight to behold as young people from across the country converged for their departure for the event. The Sisters were greeted by numerous young Catholics enthusiastically anticipating the event.

After a long day of travel the Sisters arrived safely in Madrid and were greeted by the Little Sisters of the Poor who will be providing hospitality throughout their stay. A gracious welcome was followed by the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Afterwards the Sisters had the opportunity to visit with the residents where the Little Sisters of the poor care for the elderly. The visit was enhanced by the lovely surprise of hearing the residents sing to the sisters. A quiet time of prayer brought the day of travel to a peaceful close.
