CANADA 150 - 15th Anniversary WYD 2002 Reunion

August 10, 2017
Its Canada’s 150th birthday and for the next year, we Canadians are celebrating the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation.
Now you can’t talk about the Catholic Church’s contribution to Canada history without talking about the 2002 World Youth Day that took place here in Toronto 15 years ago this past July.
Today, we’re here at the S+L Studio for a reunion of the leaders and organizers of that event, to remember the joy that was put into making WYD 2002 a defining moment in Canadian Catholic history.
