Youth center, websites, live stream for English speakers attending WYD Madrid 2011

The center will be located in Madrid?s Palacio de los Deportes, or Sports Palace. Aside from all the activities taking place there, the air conditioned facility will also be a great spot to take a break from the summer heat. Over a million people will be attending World Youth Day this year. Roughly 25,000 of them are Americans. To keep up to date with all the center?s activities, one can visit www.wydenglish.orgAbout 60 U.S. Bishops are also planning on visiting Spain?s capital. They will be holding a Mass on Saturday 20th before heading out to a vigil presided by the Holy Father. Those who can?t go to World Youth Day, will be able to follow it from home. The U.S Conference of Catholic Bishops has launched a so called “Virtual Pilgrimage.” Through a Facebook page, users from all over the world can keep up with the daily activities. Also, at this other website called, www.virtualworldyouthday.org, one can see a live video feed directly from Madrid. WYD starts on August 16 and ends on the 21st. KLH-JMBN
