Thorie Tembo’s WYD Update Day 6

Day 6 – (20th January) today we visited the largest Roman Catholic Church in the United States and in North America and also one of the 10 largest churches in the world. The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception is made of 2 beautiful and massive levels, the Great Upper Church and the Crypt Level. To place this into perspective, it is similar to St. Mary’s Cathedral except bigger. Here we celebrated Mass and were joined by the Sydney Catholic Schools teachers.

The Sydney Catholic Youth have since arrived safely and been warmly welcomed in Panama!
