Catechesis Sessions in Madrid

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 organised 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 accomodation.

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 (Av Felipe II, s/n, 28009). 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 WYDTV on on those three days, and on S+L TV’s digital cable network, August 17-19 at 9am ET (6am PT). Each Catechesis Session ends with daily Mass.
