Salt + Light launches WYDCentral.org, new permanent website for all things World Youth Day

June 29, 2011
Are you interested in World Youth Day? I don't mean  Madrid11 - I mean ALL World Youth Days: before Madrid and beyond.
[singlepic id=30 w=320 float=right]If so, you can now benefit from a new resource: www.wydcentral.org. This new website features a repository of information on World Youth Days and will be an information hub for pilgrims, ex-pilgrims and pilgrims-to-be, and all interested persons throughout the world.
What can you find at WYD Central?  There's background information, travel info related to WYD Madrid 2011, reflections from pilgrims around the world, information on previous World Youth Days and a wide assortment of videos, including footage from every event going back its beginnings in 1985. For me, that's the best thing!  This unique archival footage is available in the site’s WYD-TV platform.
“World Youth Day is at the heart of Salt and Light,” said our very own Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB, who, as you know, was also CEO of World Youth Day 2002 in Toronto. “World Youth Day has yielded immeasurable good around the world. We are among its fruits and this new website is but a small expression of our appreciation to the Pontifical Council for the Laity for having instituted this much-needed universal program.”
The site is also dedicated to all the young people from around the world, without whom World Youth Days would not exist.
This site is for all people - whether you're just finding out about WYD now, or you're a veteran. We welcome your submissions. Videos, reflections, photos - send them and let's make WYD Central a great place for all things WYD.
The website is updated daily, with ongoing updates to WYD-TV, and will include a special live-stream of Salt + Light’s World Youth Day Madrid 2011 coverage.
