World Youth Day, Koln - August 2005

40 young people & priests from Lancaster Diocese attended the 20th World Youth Day in Koln, Germany. The first phase - days in the diocese - took place in the town of Idar-Oberstein in the diocese of Trier. For the main phase of the event, we were based in Dusseldorf.

The Lancaster group also had the pleasure of hosting 4 pilgrims from Hallam Diocese, including Bishop John.
