Bringing the solidarity of the youth from Krakow to Parañaque

Last week was the World Youth Day 2016 and everyone had their eyes on Krakow, Poland where the event was held. Around the world, events were simultaneously held to celebrate WYD for those who couldn't make it to Poland. For example, the WYD 2016-themed event at the Tahilan Residence and Study Center.

But that's not the only event here in the Philippines that's simultaneous with the World Youth Day as the Our Lady of the Abandoned Vicariate in Parañaque hosted their local World Youth Day last July 31 - an event spearheaded by the parish's Commission on Youth.

So for your viewing pleasure, here's Mikey Bustos' parody of Meghan Traino...

Part 1: The World Youth Day Talk

Last week was the World Youth Day and with that, Tahilan decided to hold a talk simultaneously where we learned about the history of the World Youth Day. The resource person for this talk was Miss Nicey who also joined the World Youth Day in 1995 when it was held in Manila.
