World Youth Day Sydney 2008 Vocations Expo

From the WYD08 Website:

Brothers, Fathers & Sisters doin' it for themselves at World Youth Day - Vocations Expo welcomes 75+ applications

World Youth Day Sydney 2008 (WYD08) organisers have welcomed more than 75 applications from around the world to exhibit at the Vocations Expo, held during the WYD08 week of activities, 15 - 20 July this year.

A central component of each WYD, the Vocations Expo is a dynamic exhibition and discussion space exploring all vocational states of life including priesthood, marriage, family and the laity, and the call to holiness of religious and consecrated life.

Since applications opened in October 2007, exhibitors from as far as France, USA, New Zealand, England, Germany, Cameroon and the Philippines have demonstrated their eagerness to participate.

"We have had a wonderful response to date, with applications from various religious orders, vocations networks, tertiary educational institutions, Church agencies, Bishops Conferences and diocesan vocations offices around Australia and internationally," said Fr Danai Penollar, WYD08 Vocations Expo Project Officer.

"As the countdown to WYD08 continues, I encourage all interested groups to act now as demand is high and exhibitor spaces are being snapped up quickly."

Vocations Expo is a unique forum for young adults who are dedicated to their faith to seek information and guidance regarding the various states of vocational life in the Church.

"With more than 225,000 registered pilgrims coming to Sydney to celebrate their faith, exhibitors will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to open eyes and doors to the wonders that vocational life has to offer," said Fr Danai.

The Vocations Expo will be held in Hall 1 of the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre.
