Two thousand handicapped registered for WYD 2008 in Sydney

.- Organizers of the next World Youth Day in Sydney, which will be held July 15-20, report that some two thousand handicapped young people have registered to participate in the event.

As during previous World Youth Days, special care will be given to handicapped youth, with organizations such as Unitalsi of Italy and Dunital of Germany are working to bring to Australia any handicapped youth who wishes to attend.

WYD 2008 General Coordinator, Auxiliary Bishop Anthony Fisher of Sydney, explained that a Eucharist adoration campaign has begun in all of the dioceses of Australia, and he invited young people around the world to join together in prayer in preparation for the event.

Bishop Fisher said young people from more than 150 countries are participating in the campaign, including young people from China, Iraq, East Timor, the United States and many other places.
