WYD - Catechesis sessions in Madrid

August 12, 2011
You can now visit the Madrid11 website and look for all the locations for the catechesis sessions.
The catechesis sessions traditionally take place from the Wednesday to Friday of WYD. In Madrid they will be on Wednesday August 17th, Thursday August 18th, and Friday August 19th, at 10:00 am. Every day there will be a different bishop at each location and the sessions are organized by language.
This year, rather than assigning catechesis sessions to the registered participants, the WYD National Office invites pilgrims to go to the catechesis session closest to their accommodation.
The largest English-speaking catechesis site will be at the Knights of Columbus and Sisters of Life-sponsored Love and Life Site, housed in the Palacio de los Deportes. At the Love and Life Site, catechesis sessions will be led by three bishops--one from Australia, one from the U.S. and one from Canada. These catechesis sessions will be broadcast live at WYD TV on www.wydcentral.org on those three days, and on S+L TV's digital cable network from August 17-19 at 9am ET (6am PT). Each catechesis session ends with daily Mass.
