Archbishop Anthony Fisher

Thousands of Australians have travelled to World Youth Day and hold wonderful memories. Theyโ€™ve experienced conversion to Christ or a deepening of their existing faith and ideals. Last World Youth Day in Poland Pope Francis joined millions of young people who answered the invitation to be witnesses of faith.

We now look forward to World Youth Day in Panama,ย the “bridge of the world, heart of the universe”.

Iโ€™m looking forward to leading young people from our Archdiocese on this once in a lifetime journey of faith.

Come and join us for World Youth Day in Panama City in 2019!

Most Rev Anthony Fisher OP
