Liturgical Program for World Youth Day 2008

I am happy to announce Juventutem Australia's draft Liturgical Program for World Youth Day, 2008.

Pilgrims will arrive in Melbourne over the course of Tuesday and Wednesday, the 8th and 9th July, in time for the beginning of the program on Thursday 10th July, 2008. All of Juventutem's Masses will be celebrated according to the Classical Roman Rite.

Thursday 10th July: Votive Mass of the Blessed Sacrament (Bishop Peter Elliott)
Friday 11th July: Votive Mass of St Benedict with collects from si diligis me (Archbishop Denis Hart)
Saturday 12th July: Pontifical Requiem (Victoria likely)
Sunday 13th July: 9th Sunday after Pentecost (Pontifical)

Monday 14th July: Pilgrims travel to Sydney by bus - low Masses of St Bonaventure

Tuesday 15th July: On this day Cardinal Pell celebrates the Official WYD opening Mass. There will be low Masses in the Classical Rite for the feast of St Henry. This is also a day for discovering Sydney.

Wednesday 16th July: Our Lady of Mount Carmel
Thursday 17th July: Votive Mass of the Holy Spirit
Friday 18th July: Votive Mass of the Holy Cross
Saturday 19th July: Feast of St Vincent de Paul. Vigil at Randwick racecourse.

Sunday 20th July: Papal Mass. There will be Mass(es) for the 10th Sunday after Pentecost following the Papal festivities. We hope to have something special for pilgrims this evening.

Masses in the Classical Roman Rite will be available for pilgrims on each day of the World Youth Day program. Liturgies are open to all pilgrims. The Offices of Vespers and Compline will be sung daily. Chant is of the essence. Pontificals are the norm.

Note: The 'post Pentecost count' is mine - and may be mistaken. Please pray for us. Please make plans to attend - and tell your chaplains.

Please leave comments if interested.

How could I get in touch with Juventutem pilgrims heading for Australia, if there is no Juventutem group in my country and only very few young people now something about Traditional Mass?
I reported one article from WYD in Cologne about Mass in Maria-Hilf Church and still have that magnificient experience before my eyes.
Any advice?

It sounds like it will be a wonderful experience, and will be a great opportunity to expose many to the Classical Rite & be a wonderful avenue for many graces. I hope that we can get as many people from New Zealand involved as possible - we're in the process of setting up a site for the NZ chapter this week & getting in contact with various people around the country.

Andrew, God bless you. We want as many pilgrims visiting from New Zealand as possible - and we are praying for you as you establish your chapter. Juventutem Australia will be making a visit to Christchurch in a few weeks.

Peter - greetings in Our Lord! Registrations for individuals will open very soon. That way, pilgrims from all nations, whether they have established Juventutem chapters or not, will be able to attend World Youth Day with Juventutem. This website, with the other Juventutem blogs and pages will keep you updated with information. We certainly pray that a group of young people gathers around you so that you might come together.

Everyone is very welcome!

The Sundays after Pentecost count looks right. :)

Pontifical Masses, Daily sung Vespers and Compline... I pray that the preparation of all these goes smoothly. But might I suggest sung Lauds to begin the day?

I would love to go for WYD with Juventutem, but whether or not this plan come to fruition is dependent on where our most merciful Lord leads.

I should probably come up to Christchurch & visit you then - it's only a few hours up the road. At least it's closer than Melbourne :)
