Many friends, family and parishioners will have the opportunity to follow Australia’s journey to the city of mercy as 2,500 World Youth Day pilgrims travelling to Poland with the live web cast of events from Krakow through the digital platform Xt3.com.
From 26-31 July, main events from Krakow will be broadcast live at: www.xt3.com/live.
