WYD08: Two Years Down, One More to Go!

July 15, 2007
wydsyd08logo.gifA year from today -- July 15th -- thousands will begin the World Youth Day 2008 experience in Australia. Two years have already quickly zipped by, and before you know it, Salt + Light will be providing reports to you from Sydney during the non-stop faith-filled week of World Youth Day activities!
Registrations are going well -- already 120,000 pilgrims have signed up, and organizers believe they may exceed their goal of 125,000 international pilgrims. The theme song "Receive the Power" has also been officially released, and the World Youth Day Cross and Icon have landed down under too.
To help mark '-365 and counting,' Salt + Light is presenting a 'Countdown to Sydney' special Sunday, July 15th at 9pm ET. The 30-minute program, hosted by Gillian Kantor and David Naglieri, reviews what has happened thus far in preparation for Sydney: from the initial WYD announcement to the Australian arrival of the globe traveling cross. In addition to a Wednesday, July 18th, 9pm ET encore presentation, you can also watch the special on our website by clicking HERE.
